UFC 224 Embedded 6: Nunes vs Pennington Vlog Series

UFC 224 Nunes Pennington

Nunes (15-4) earned her first title shot in UFC against Miesha Tate for the UFC women's bantamweight championship at the historic UFC 200 on July 9, 2016. She had one fight at flyweight before signing with the UFC and returning to strawweight.

Immediately after the fight, an emotional Nunes said it was the most hard fight of her career.

The Brazilian, who dispatched of Ronda Rousey in 48 seconds, is on a six-fight win streak and is looking to set up a mega-fight with Cris Cyborg with a win here on her home turf.

A visit to Best Fight Odds will reveal that Nunes is as much as a -1000 favorite going into her third title defense.

The 25-year-old missed weight by seven pounds, weighing in at 123 for the 115-pound fight.

However, her aura of invincibility was damaged somewhat in her last fight, edging a closely contested split decision against Valentina Shevchenko, a fight many thought she may have lost. That said, I am going to avoid trying to make a prediction and just enjoy watching this. Bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington gets some physical therapy after her long trip to Brazil. And obviously it's 2018, so just being openly gay, and being able to be myself, and going up against another fellow (training) partner. This fight could be the last scrap for the fighter who doesn't get their hand raised Saturday night.

"It's a celebration all-around for the gay community", says former UFC contender Hardy.

Either way, it will be fun to watch two of the greats go toe-to-toe.

Without further ado, let's get on with the preview of a card that has a good mix of young, old, and very old!

Pennington's gas tank can't be challenged, having averaged 13:07 of fight time per UFC bout. I like the champ to win. "C'mon girl. I know it hurts, I know. It would be incredible if a couple of male fighters came out in the UFC, and it would show how progressive and pioneering the sport is in that regard". She is more of a grinder that tries to out-work her opponents. I'm sure there are.

Below is all of the information you will need leading up to the fight, including every episode of UFC 224 Embedded. "Away from the octagon, the amount of positive and mainstream media coverage that a fighter would attract in terms of interviews on sofas, and covers of magazines, would be phenomenal, and it would be phenomenal for a fighter to experience that in their career".

The main card for UFC 224 starts at 10 p.m. ET on pay per view.

Also on the card is No. 2 middleweight Ronald Souza taking on No. 5 Kelvin Gastelum, and up-and-comer MacKenzie Dern will face Amanda Cooper.
