Julianna Pena produced one of the biggest upsets in UFC history when she stopped Amanda Nunes to become the UFC Bantamweight champion at UFC 269. The Venezuelan Vixen is currently 11-4 in her professional MMA career and is on a two-fight winning streak as well.

Pena has already proved herself in the MMA World and if the opportunity opens up, she is willing to test the waters in Professional Wrestling as well.

“Right now my focus is on fighting. Later on, if that opportunity presents itself, I don’t see why I couldn’t explore that avenue. Definitely, my focus is on fighting for the UFC,” said Pena during her recent interview with the NY Post.

A long list of names has transitioned successfully from MMA to WWE with the most notable one being Ronda Rousey. The former UFC Bantamweight champion also has some history with Pena as the two used to have some friction during the Season 18 of The Ultimate Fighter.

Pena had recently expressed her desire to fight Ronda Rousey in the UFC as well and noted that she will gladly welcome back Rousey to the Octagon.
