Amanda Nunes to battle Raquel Pennington at UFC224
12 March, 2018, 18:57
The UFC today made official a women's bantamweight title fight between champ Nunes and Raquel Pennington.
After Cyborg's response to Nunes callout from UFC 215, everyone assumed that would be the next fight for these two athletes.
Thats an impressive run given that prior to that, Rocky's' career record was just 5-5, though most of her losses were to high-level opposition such as Holly Holm, Jessica Andrade, Cat Zingano and Leslie Smith. Pennington hasn't fought since November 2016 at UFC 205, where she earned a unanimous decision victory against Tate. The potential fight between Nunes and the featherweight champion would take a big hit if Pennington were to emerge victorious.
Although Nunes (15-4 MMA, 8-1 UFC) vs. Pennington (9-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC) was expected, UFC President Dana Whitetoyed with the idea of scrapping it to ensure a champion vs. champion showdown between Nunes and featherweight titleholder Cyborg (20-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC). However, Cyborg expressed when asked about that possibility that it was just too soon.
If Nunes can beat Pennington and defend her belt for a third straight time it will in all likelihood set up a superfight with her compatriot, Cyborg.
Amanda Nunes is on a six-fight win streak in the UFC, taking out names such as Miesha Tate, Ronda Rousey, Sara McMann, and Valentina Shevchenko twice. Nunes wants the fight, she wants the fight, I want the fight, I'm sure the fans want to see it, too.
The card will take place on May 12th in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Going down on May 12th, the UFC 224 card will also feature Lyoto Machida fighting Vitor Belfort, along with Jacare Souza's clash with Kelvin Gastelum.
