UFC 289 was supposed to be the rubber match of a trilogy between Nunes and Peña, but the latter sustained a rib injury. Irene Aldana - who is 7-4 in UFC and is 14-6 in MMA - stepped up. The champ (who is also a champ-champ, as she holds the UFC Women's Featherweight title as well) respects her new challenger, telling the press “She’s a better fighter than Julianna, for sure."
In the co-main event, Charles Oliveira vs. Beneil Dariush arrives one show later than it should have. Oliveira lost the UFC's light heavyweight title last May, when he failed to make weight against Justin Gaethje, who then submitted him via rear-naked choke. After losing a fight for the vacated title in October to Islam Makhachev, this is Oliveira's latest chance to get back in contention.
DraftKings has Nunes (-325) predictably favored for the main event, with Aldana (+270) as the underdog. You'd have to bet $325 on a winning Nunes to win $100, while a $100 wager on a winning Aldana would net you $270. Those are up by 5 each from yesterday.
The site lists Dariush (-155) for the favorite in the co-main, with Oliveira (+135) as a slighter underdog. These are also up by 5 each from yesterday.

UFC returns to Canada with the UFC 289 PPV, which will be headlined by the women’s bantamweight championship match between Amanda Nunes vs Irene Aldana in the main event. The high-octane match card also features the much-awaited return of Charles Oliveira, the former lightweight champion.
Oliveira will face no. 4 ranked American star Beneil Dariush in the co-main event. This would mark his first fight since losing the UFC lightweight title to Islam Makhachev at UFC 280. Meanwhile, 34-year-old Dariush defeated Mateusz Gamrot by a unanimous decision in the same UFC 280 card. Here’s a look at how MMA fans around the globe can watch the much-hyped event.

Oliveira's loss to Makhachev snapped a memorable 11-fight winning streak. Meanwhile, Dariush is in rare form with eight straight wins.
