UFC 224: Twitter reacts to Amanda Nunes vs. Raquel Pennington

Amanda Nunes

Nunes is still three successful title defenses short of Ronda Rousey's UFC women's record of six, but it's worth noting that Rousey defended the Strikeforce Women's Bantamweight title once more before being awarded the UFC title.

We have a 13-fight slate on tap for Saturday night with Amanda Nunes in the main event as a -900 favorite over Raquel Pennington.

Before the decisive round, Pennington was heard saying "I'm done", but her coach insisted she should return to the bout. A Nunes knee to Pennington's face seemed to break Pennington's nose. Nunes adjusted in the third round and from there it was pretty much domination. She repeatedly followed leg kicks with head blows early on, backing Pennington up to the edge of the Octagon and leaving the outside of her left leg bright purple and red from the repeated strikes.

Klopp keeps focus on Brighton amid Real talk
Speaking on Friday, he said: "I would say so". "We had so many tests to pass and the boys really delivered in almost all of them". We were up against an outstanding team on Wednesday and we are up against an outstanding team on Sunday.

Pennington got her chance on May 12, but did not come home with the gold.

Fans can also look forward to the undefeated Mackenzie Dern (6-0) taking on Amanda "ABC" Cooper (3-3). This resulted in Nunes dragging Pennington to the ground and finishing off the challenger. Referee Marc Goddard stopped the 135-pound title fight at the 2:36 mark of the final round inside Jeunesse Arena. Nunes was taken down with less than 50 seconds left in the round.

After the fight, the respect was clear between the pair, with Nunes bringing Tecia Torres to the cage and insisting the trio were going for a beer afterwards.

The American Red Cross continues to serve evacuated residents at shelters established at Pahoa and Keaau community centers. Since last week, lava has been siphoning away for the volcano's summit, breaking through the ground in the 15 fissures.

Gastelum said: "I expected to win, but I wanted to finish the fight and guarantee the title shot". Instead of calling to stop the fight, her corner encouraged her to compete in the fifth round. It was the most hard in my career. But I had to defend the belt.

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. Pennington's corner sent her out anyway, and she took a hellacious, bloody beating before the fight was waved off.
