UFC 224 results: Nunes breaks Pennington's nose and retains title
14 May, 2018, 00:17 | Author: Rachael Silva
UFC is back in Brazil for the UFC 224 event, loaded with fights.
At the start of the fight, Nunes surprised Pennington with a hard leg kick that dropped her to the ground and she continued to pepper that leg throughout the first round.
"It's sad because you could avoid something", Nunes said about Pennington's corner.
Nunes had Pennington in retreat during the opening rounds, battering her lead leg to set up her boxing combinations. She landed 143 "significant strikes" compared to the challengers 28 and allowed Pennington just 40 seconds of control on the mat.
But Pennington didn't have anything left in the tank, and Nunes went in for the finish, pinning Pennington on her back around the 3:00 mark.
Pennington had had enough by the end of the fourth round, but her corner persuaded her to continue the contest, although the fifth didn't last long.
The Brazilian dominated the bout against Pennington in her homeland and was eventually declared the victor when the referee stepped in to stop the fight 2:36 minutes into Round 5 via a technical knockout.
And even after taking down the former Team Tate star, Nunes was met with more doggedness from Pennington, who was fast running out of ideas of how to dethrone the Brazilian.
Nunes threw her hands up in celebration as she earned the TKO stoppage at 2:36 into the fifth and final round. Having relocated her training camp from Arizona to California, Dern claimed she could be ready to compete again in a couple of months in her post-fight interview. "(My girlfriend) Nina (Ansaroff) told me.
And the former victor of The Ultimate Fighter said the time was right for him to be given the next shot at UFC championship gold. "It was very hard for me. I am always motivated for every fight and I promise you I will be motivated for this one, too".
Nunes, 29, said she didn't know about everything that had happened before returning to the locker room after her successful title defense. The UFC has expressed interest in a potential super fight between Nunes and 145-pound champion Cris "Cyborg" Justino later this year.
Pennington's corner implored her to move forward on the champion, something she did well in the second round. Whether or not there will be fallout from that situation remains to be seen.
