Amanda Nunes was the GOAT. Amanda Nunes is still the GOAT.

More than merely making some physical adjustments in the wake of her title loss to Juliana Pena at UFC 269, it seemed like Amanda Nunes just flat vowed to show the world she was still the women’s MMA GOAT on Saturday at UFC 277. And, yeah, mission accomplished. Nunes battered Pena from pillar to post for 25 minutes in their main event fight, duly recapturing the 135-pound title and reminding us all that we probably don’t appreciate her greatness as much as we should. So, sorry if we ever doubted you, Amanda.

Also, Brandon Moreno continued to be a badass men’s flyweight and a true delight as a human being. Plus, we circle back to touch a bit on the stuff we missed from UFC London.
