Pena’s biological father, whom he met a few months after joining the UFC, lives in Norfolk and is a captain at the nearby naval base, according to Pena. He will be accompanied by a “group from my other family”, who will be watching and meeting Pena for the first time.
“It’s not a lot of pressure,” said Pena. “But I can’t lie. It’s like I said to my girlfriend last night, when I met my little brother, I don’t want him to think I’m lame or anything. the kind of things that come to my mind, but I hope it’s like all the other fights, where by the time I get there, it’s time to go. “
When it is time to leave, Pena will surely have no trouble displaying the dynamic and entertaining fighting style that pleases UFC fans. His 3-2 record is evident from a fighter looking to find consistency in himself and in his training to pay dividends (although his last fight against Matt Frevola was a shaved decision loss), but if his words are true, it seems as if he had found a new home in Florida and ATT.
Pena seemed just as excited about her next fight and meeting a particular family member: her biological younger brother. The two met at a dinner hosted by her biological father, and even though it didn’t go smoothly, it was the start of a relationship that Pena hopes to develop into something substantial.
