UFC 224: Amanda Nunes Looks To Retain Bantamweight Crown In Brazil

UFC 224: Amanda Nunes Looks To Retain Bantamweight Crown In Brazil

Immediately after the fight, an emotional Nunes said it was the most hard fight of her career. Nunes was taken down with less than 50 seconds left in the round.

Meanwhile, Nunes was racking up damage to Pennington's lead leg, which was streaked with pink and purple from the first round on.

Nunes took down Pennington and after strikes to the face, left blood pouring from her nose, before the referee stepped in for the stoppage.

However, if Nunes again proves too strong and defends her title for a third time... are we headed towards a superfight between two Brazilians, with one of the scariest fighters in the sport in Cris Cyborg? For the first time, Nunes is a favorite - and a big favorite at that.

After a solid opening round, Nunes realized that Pennington was game.

"I live in the US, but I'm from Brazil and I represent Brazil with the flag and my belt", Nunes told the crowd after her sixth straight win. Instead, they implored her to go back out and leave it all in the Octagon rather than stopping the fight at her request. Unfortunately, a severe leg injury slowed Pennington's pace and put her out of action for over a year and a half. ThisUFC 224 main event may seem like out-of-the-blue booking to some fans - and with a lack of strong competition there may not have been a choice - but those who have followed Pennington's career knows that she is tough as nails.

'Michael Bisping, I'm still waiting for you, man, ' Machida said in his post fight interview. "The thing that motivates me is the belt". "I will stop fighting here because I think I reached the end". At the end of the fourth round, Pennington literally told her corner she was "done" with the fight.

Machida tried to set up a date with former UFC middleweight champion, Michael Bisping, who is now looking for a dance partner for his retirement bout. Whether or not there will be fallout from that situation remains to be seen.
