LAS VEGAS – The table is set for the UFC 269 co-main event title fight between Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena following the faceoff between champion and challenger.

Nunes (21-4 MMA, 14-1 UFC) will put her women’s bantamweight title on the line against Pena (10-4 MMA, 6-2 UFC) on Saturday, and the tension has built in the final days leading up to the bout.

It’s turned into something of a grudge match, with Pena talking a lot of trash about her plan to unseat Nunes from her throne. That’s led to a lot of intensity, which was present when the pair faced off for the final time at Friday’s UFC 269 ceremonial weigh-ins.

Check out the video below to see the final Nunes vs. Pena faceoff.
