UFC 224 Results: Amanda Nunes stops Raquel Pennington in 5th round

Amanda Nunes didn't look like the same fighter who steamrolled Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey in back-to-back 2016 fights. It was very hard for me this fight. Unfortunately, a severe leg injury slowed Pennington's pace and put her out of action for over a year and a half. Prior to Torres relocating to Colorado, she was a close friend and teammate with Nunes and her fiancée Nina Ansaroff so the champion admitted afterwards that this was arguably her toughest fight to date because she was facing someone she considered a friend. "The thing that motivates me is the belt".

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

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.

In the co-main event, Kelvin Gastelum earned a split decision win over Jacare Souza to likely become the next contender for the middleweight championship.

"The Dragon" lured Belfort into a false sense of security before he sent his rear leg right through his fellow Brazlian's defensive shell. Current UFC women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg. "They called me like, 'Are you okay?' I said: 'Don't worry you guys, it's okay".
