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

14 May 2018

As for Pennington, she showed incredible toughness throughout the fight, although her corner didn't do her any favors by not stopping the contest when their athlete said she was done. "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". And I would have done the same thing because sometimes when you're exhausted and you don't think you have enough left, your coach's job is to pull the most out of you.

"When it comes to finish this bout, something I've dreamed about for so long, I have to do it". I had to do it.

"We are friends. We're gonna leave this cage (and) we're gonna have a beer and celebrate our friendship".

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".

The champion showcased her wrestling ability in the third and fourth rounds.

She butchered Pennington with leg kicks before appearing to break her nose with a knee in the clinch. This resulted in Nunes dragging Pennington to the ground and finishing off the challenger.

American Kelvin Gastelum beat crowd favourite Ronaldo "Jacare" Souza in a split-decision. "All I need is one strike to end the fight". Pennington landed some shots here and there but couldn't connect with anything significant. Gastelum jumped in and out of striking distance, looking light on his feet as he tagged his opponent. Dern, who made her UFC debut only two months ago and weighed in seven pounds above the limit on Friday, won by submission.

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.
