Amanda Nunes Batters Raquel Pennington To Retain UFC Title

Amanda Nunes Batters Raquel Pennington To Retain UFC Title

Nunes looked to have a clear speed advantage and her output was higher. The event was headlined by UFC bantamweight title fight between Amanda Nunes and Raquel Pennington. Nunes delivered several knees to Pennington's face in the fourth, leaving her faced bloodied.

Once the fight was over, Nunes called Pennington and her fiancée Tecia Torres to join her in the Octagon where she addressed how hard this fight was for her. Unfortunately, Nunes wasn't able to do much with the position and referee Marc Goddard was forced to stand them back up again.

According to Fightmetric, Nunes outlanded Pennington in total strikes 152-to-79. Pennington kept having to adjust her top. The fight was stood back up.

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.

Lineker introduced his heavy hands at the midpoint of the first-round when he dropped Kelleher to the canvas with a left hook.

According to space.com , the rocket will try to land on a robotic " drone ship " off the Florida coast shortly after liftoff. At T-38mins, the SpaceX Launch Director will verify that all is ready for the start of propellant loading.

Nunes is rightly considered a huge favourite in this fight, but this is mixed martial arts... literally anything can happen! She swept Pennington off her feet with the very first leg kick she threw and had success keeping the challenger's back to the fence all night. Pennington ate another knee and went for a takedown. She continued to be on the offensive.

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. 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.

A dominant fourth round saw a weird and absurd end as at the end of the round, Pennington returned to the corner and wanted out of the fight, due to a broken twisted nose.

Nunes took her opponent down and landed an elbow.
