Julianna Pena Announced She’s Going to Be a Mom But Will Still Kick Ass For UFC

It wasn’t too long ago that Julianna Pena was knocking on the door to a women’s UFC bantamweight title shot.

Things didn’t end up going her way in the Octagon in her last fight, but everything else seems to be doing awesome.…

“My goal right now is to have my baby, love my baby, and get back into the Octagon. The division definitely needs me. My main goal is to rematch Valentina [Shevchenko] in my first fight back. I messed up in my last fight, I was overzealous. Having a daughter on the way not only rejuvenated me personally, it gave me so much more to fight for. I’m excited to start this new phase in my life and UFC has been so supportive of me. Dana White was stoked, he loves kids, and told me fighting will always be here waiting for me.”
