Julianna Pena had to be taken to hospital following her rematch with Amanda Nunes after losing a chunk of her forehead.

Pena stunned Nunes, who is considered one of the finest female MMA fighters of all time, at UFC 269.

Nunes was always going to insist on a rematch with Pena in a bid to win back her title, with the pair meeting in the octagon on Saturday night.

Ultimately, Nunes triumphed and returned to her throne, but she had to do it on points after Pena battled through what was a gruelling fight.

In doing so, Pena suffered damage to her face that will require her going under the knife to rectify, as you can see below…

Battling on with such a degree of damage sustained is testament to what a warrior Pena is. She can hold her head up high, even in defeat.
