UFC 224: Nunes vs. Pennington Results
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.
That ill-thought-out approach resulted in her being taken down and eating more strikes on her back. "Unfortunately, tonight he failed".
That cost her in the fifth round as Nunes took the fight to the ground and immediately began bludgeoning Pennington as her nose absolutely exploded with blood gushing out onto the mat with the champion just brutalizing her without pause. She went out there, and she got finished.
The Brazilian won three of her four bouts via knockout, and her reign as the UFC women's bantamweight champion is now the second longest, only behind Rousey who was champion for just under three years in the UFC. "It might be a bad injury for her to go to the hospital". Pennington is engaged to UFC strawweight Tecia Torres, who used to train with Nunes in South Florida.
Nunes showcased her wrestling ability in the third round and laid into Pennington with knees from the clinch at the end of the fourth.
Saudis will seek nuclear weapon if Iran does: minister
It is in talks with the United States to secure an atomic deal that could pave the way for the Saudi regime to enrich uranium. Observers warn that Riyadh insistence on enriching uranium on its own means it seeks to keep a nuclear weapons option open.
And the former victor of The Ultimate Fighter said the time was right for him to be given the next shot at UFC championship gold. "And I think that's what the corner was trying to do is not let her give up on herself...get her back in the game mentally". It was hard to me. Pennington, as you surely know, was bloodied further in round five and the fight was stopped. "It was the most hard fight in my career to fight this girl".
Despite being significantly down on the scorecards, Pennington showed no urgency and stuck to the strategy which saw her opponent build up an unassailable led on the judges' scorecards. I had to do it to defend this belt, defend my biggest dream.
Despite offering very little in terms of offense, Pennington did keep the champion on her toes with some well-placed counter punches, though they had little effect on "The Lioness".
McKenzie Dern looked the part as she knocked Amanda Cooper down with a powerful overhand right and forced her to submit in the first round. The UFC has expressed interest in a potential super fight between Nunes and 145-pound champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino later this year.
