The pair was scheduled to fight on August 7 at UFC 265, but “The Lioness” pulled out of the fight due to a positive COVID-19 test.
The 33-year-old Nunes is on a 12-fight winning streak. She’s also the featherweight champion, as she defended successfully the 66 kg strap against Megan Anderson in her last outing in UFC.
Pena, 32, has lost two of his previous four fight. She was last seen inside the Octagon in January when she defeated Sara McMann via submission.
