“Fighters You Should Know”

The athletes that were selected for the latest “Fighters You Should Know” are Kyler Phillips, Heili Alateng and Julianna Pena.

If you’ve been following MMA for a little while, you’re probably familiar with Pena as she won TUF 18 back in 2013. Pena has only fought once since 2017, however, as she took a break from fighting to give birth to her daughter.

In her last bout, which went down in July, 2019, Pena defeated former flyweight champ Nicco Montana via decision.
