Pena in a recent interview given to MMA Junkie, talked about her scheduled return to MMA. Here’s what she had to say about her long-awaited MMA return:

I definitely played it by ear, I think taking (my daughter) with me to all my practices helped me to get back to the octagon sooner. She’s been growing up on the mats since after I had the baby at like six weeks. I think it’s awesome she’s been able to be with me on my journey. I didn’t have a strict timeline for when I want to get back or like, ‘I got to be there in less than a year.’ I just definitely played it by ear and let it go and come and go as it did. The Venezuelan Vixen” was the No. 2-ranked contender at women’s bantamweight, according to the UFC’s official rankings. The division has evolved a lot over the past 29 months, but Pena sees an opportunity to slide back in as if she hasn’t missed a beat.

I’m back, I’m ready to go, I’m ready to fight, I’m taking this fight on three weeks’ (notice) and that’s literally not something I’m holding onto, like, ‘Oh, I only took it in three weeks.’ I’m back, I’m back in the game and I’m fighting a former world champion.
