UFC 224 Results: Amanda Nunes TKO Raquel Pennington

Amanda Nunes

Nunes made the third defence of her 135lbs title in the main event of UFC 224, which took place in her home country of Brazil in the early hours of the morning. On the high of capturing the title, Nunes welcomed back former bantamweight queen, Ronda Rousey, who had not stepped inside the Octagon for more than a year following her stunning upset loss to Holly Holm at UFC 193.

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - MAY 12: Amanda Nunes of Brazil submit Raquel Pennington of the United States in their women's bantamweight bout during the UFC 224 event at Jeunesse Arena on May 12, 2018 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

With the result seeming to be a foregone conclusion in the fifth, Pennington told her corner she was done, but her coaches didn't agree. Nunes delivered several knees to Pennington's face in the fourth, leaving her faced bloodied.

Many took to Twitter to express their disbelief. But to say, "If a fighter tells a corner they're done, that corner should never, under any circumstances, encourage them to continue", is something I don't agree with. Nunes was consistently able to use her long reach and power advantage to do damage to her opponent. "I am excited for this fight, for sure, because I know how tough Raquel is". It was the most hard in my career.

"We are friends. We're gonna leave this cage (and) we're gonna have a beer and celebrate our friendship. Tonight was about my belt, but I respect the friendship we have".

The action was non-stop to-and-fro, but it was Gastelum who finished on top and he took the fight on two of the three judges' cards.

American Kelvin Gastelum beat crowd favourite Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in a split-decision. And I would appreciate my coach supporting me in every effort to win a world title.

"Hopefully I'm in line next for that title", he said.

"Everything in life has beginning, middle and end", Belfort said.

But in that initial moment, I don't think it's an easy call for a corner to make. "All I need is one strike to end the fight". Current UFC women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg.

'Michael Bisping, I'm still waiting for you, man, ' Machida said in his post fight interview. I want to do this fight. "I am always motivated for every fight and I promise you I will be motivated for this one, too".

McKenzie Dern lived up to her reputation with a slick first-round submission win over Amanda Cooper after knocking her down with a powerful overhand right.

Unbeaten Brazilian jiu-jitsu specialist Mackenzie Dern needed less than three minutes to overcome American Amanda Cooper in the strawweight division. "This victory is for you, dad!" she said.
