Julianna Pena is a world-renowned Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) athlete who has achieved great success in the sport. She is an American mixed martial artist from Spokane, Washington and competes in the bantamweight division of the UFC.

Pena attended Gonzaga University, where she was a standout wrestler for two years before enrolling at East Valley High School to finish high school.

In 2011, Pena won The Ultimate Fighter 18 which earned her an invitation to join the UFC roster. She made her official debut six months later against Milana Dudieva on October 5th 2013 at UFC Fight Night 33 where she won by unanimous decision becoming only one of two women ever to win The Ultimate Fighter tournament and become successful in their next fight as well. Since then she has gone 6-2 within the octagon taking wins over some of the top names including Cat Zingano and Valentina Shevchenko showing off her skills both standing up or on ground game while also showcasing impressive cardio during all five rounds if needed as well as stellar mental resilience when facing adversity inside octagon setting winning performance bonus multiple times during her career so far .

Outside of fighting Julianna loves spending time outdoors such as hunting deer or hiking local trails with friends whenever possible but given travel restrictions due to COVID 19 pandemic it’s not something that’s been happening recently unfortunately . When asked about future aspirations outside of fighting Pena says “I am really interested in learning more about business , entrepreneurship and investing I proudly graduated top 5 % Of my class after studying criminal justice so I think those topics might be great fit for me moving forward”

Outside of work Julianna loves being around people especially family members whom offer unconditional support throughout training camps or any other difficult moments life throws our way . We can easily see how dedicated Julianna is towards achieving greatness inside Octagon thanks to heartfelt passion we see every single time we watch interview conducted by media outlets prior fights . Despite having accomplished plenty already there’s no doubt that best days are still ahead for this talented woman from Spokane !
