UFC 289 Preview

UFC 289: Nunes vs. Aldana will be occurring up north this Saturday (June 10th) for what will be the promotion’s first time in Canada since the world shut down for the global pandemic. Vancouver, British Columbia will be the setting, and the UFC’s women’s bantamweight belt will sway in the balance in the main event when the G.O.A.T. Amanda Nunes takes on the UFC’s #5 ranked 135-pounder, Irene Aldana.

Originally, this main event was supposed to be a trilogy bout between Nunes and Julianna Peña, however after Peña was pulled, Aldana was selected by the UFC brass to fill in. What a massive opportunity this is for Irene! It’s not a bad stylistic matchup for her either. Nunes should have a clear horsepower advantage here, Aldana has some relatively polished striking with descent power of her own.

The perfect example of that is Irene’s gorgeous left hook KO of Ketlen Vieira back in 2019. It’s not just her hands, though, as we saw with that unique up kick to the liver she utilized to put away Macy Chiasson in her last match. Nunes has proven that she can find a way to win regardless of where the fight takes place, but if she wants the easiest night possible, then she ought to try and take Aldana down.

The card’s co-main event promises to be a thriller when the UFC’s former lightweight champ, Charles Oliveira, tangles with the owner of an eight-fight winning streak in Beneil Dariush. Fighting Oliveira must be equivalent to sinking in quick sand. No matter what an opponent does, each motion puts them one step closer to suffocation. One of the most unassuming fighters on the planet, humble badass Beneil Dariush is currently ranked #4 at 155-pounds. Just like Oliveira, Dariush has the grappling, has the striking, and has a tremendously high Figh-Q. There’s no way that this matchup is anything other than epic. Let’s just go ahead and call this one the people’s main event.

The entire event goes down at the Rogers Arena.

Nunes always expected to face Aldana at UFC 289

When Julianna Peña dropped out of the bout, Nunes was unphased, telling ESPN’s YouTube channel that Aldana was always meant to be the next challenger to the women’s bantamweight title. In the conversation with Jon Anik, Nunes questioned if it was not Pena herself who found a way to make Dana White & Co. give her another shot once she learned about their plans to give the title shot to the Mexican contender.

“I feel less heavy,” Nunes admitted, when asked about the Aldana fight. “I always like to train for somebody else. When the third time came, it’s like ‘all right, let’s do this again, to put her away for good’. In the last couple of days, the news came out that [Aldana was stepping in for Pena] it was the original opponent. Me and the UFC were talking about it. They wanted Aldana next. It was always lined up to be Aldana. I don’t know if Julianna cried about it or whatever happened and she ended up getting one more opportunity.”

“Now we are here, with the original opponent.” Nunes explained. “I was ready for either one. My job is to defend the belt. Get ready, step in the cage and take my belt home with me. At the end of the day, I like to fight a good, respected opponent, too. Like Aldana. It’s going to be awesome, I can’t wait for this.”
