Today, you can watch the UFC 277 live stream online to see the most anticipated women's MMA fight of the entire year. Bantamweight champ Julianna Peña is putting her title on the line against Amanda Nunes, and we'll see if she can make it 2-0 following their December scrap.

For those who don't remember, Pena won their first fight in shockingly short manner, with a second-round submission of Nunes. Pena's win started with her boxing tricks, but it was a rear-naked choke that finished the evening. Nunes attributed her loss to knee injuries, and she still holds her UFC featherweight championship, which isn't on the line.

The UFC 277 co-main event is a battle between Brandon Moreno and Kai Kara-France for Moreno's Flyweight Interim Championship. This is also a rematch, and Moreno won their first meeting via unanimous decision.

As of the time of publishing DraftKings (opens in new tab) has Nunes as the favorite at -255 (wager $255 to win $100), and Peña as underdog at +215 (wager $100 to win $215). Moreno is the favorite, but at slightly tighter odds at -205, to France's +175.
