UFC 224 staff picks: Is anyone picking Raquel Pennington to upset Amanda Nunes?

In the main event, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes (15-4 MMA, 8-1 UFC) puts her belt up for grabs against massive underdog challenger Raquel Pennington (9-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC). Nunes is a 10-1 favorite, but she’s not a unanimous pick. One brave soul from our 14 MMAjunkie editors, writers, radio hosts and videographers is picking Pennington in an upset.

UFC 224 ‘Nunes vs. Pennington’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Jack Hermansson vs. Thales Leites Round 1 The middleweights trade leg and body kicks in the opening minute; both men are swinging for the fences with their hands, but neither is able to find the early homerun shot. Leites gets hold of a leg and runs Hermansson against the fence, where the rangy "Joker" uses good balance to stay upright. Leites slides to the back and rides Hermansson to the ground, so the Swede stands up and hurls Leites over the top. Leites doesn't stay on his back for long, but once he's up, Hermansson quickly trips him back down. Leites elevates Hermansson and gets the whizzer to stand, where he gets another bodylock. Leites walks Hermansson around the outside, looking to trip up the taller man. Hermansson does well to stay standing but can't shake Leites' underhook. Instead, Hermansson throws Leites to the ground with 30 seconds left, then feeds the Brazilian a little ground-and-pound before the horn. Sherdog Scores Mike Fridley scores the round 10-9 Hermansson Chris Nelson scores the round 10-9 Hermansson Josh Stillman scores the round 10-9 Hermansson Round 2 Leites presses forward at the start of round two, but he walks into a low kick and a right hand.

UFC 224 results: John Lineker relentless, finishes Brian Kelleher in third

Kelleher was willing to move forward and engage quickly at the start, though he certainly had to be wary of Lineker’s return fire. It was a Lineker body shot that was the first to land clean, but Kelleher quickly answered with a big left over the top, as well. A Lineker left dropped an off-balance Kelleher shortly after, and “Boom” had to clear the cobwebs before scrambling to his feet and resetting.

Morrison went in for a kick but Pico countered with a straight right that dropped Morrison. Not long after came the devastating body shot that gave Pico another emphatic win.

Bellator 199 ‘Bader vs. Lawal’ Play-by-Play, Results & Round-by-Round Scoring

Paul Daley vs. Jon Fitch Round 1 Fitch takes the center of the cage as Daley circles on the outside, moving back and forth. This lasts approximately 30 seconds before Fitch lands a leg kick and shoots against the fence. Daley sprawls but Fitch has the Brit pressed against the fence. Fitch drops low in pursuit of the takedown, as Daley continues to defend. Fitch adjusts and looks to connect his hands on a single leg. About halfway through the round and the boos are beginning to come out at the SAP center. Fitch is spending a lot of energy on the takedown try. It’s a methodical process, but Fitch is gradually getting Daley’s legs out from under him. In the meantime, Fitch lands some left hands to Daley’s face. Daley gets back to his feet, but Fitch clings to a leg. With a little less than a minute left, ref Jasn Herzog finally orders a separation. Daley tags Fitch with a right hand and a left uppercut. “Semtex” is making the most of his time on the feet and fires off an uppercut and a knee. Daley unloads with more knees and elbows against the fence. It was a short burst of offense, but Daley may have stolen that round down the stretch.

Amanda Bobby Cooper: Mackenzie Dern Missing Weight by 7 Pounds ‘Incredibly Unprofessional’

UFC 224 available for order on Amazon Prime (Prime Video PPV) Not shocked @MackenzieDern missed weight but 7.4lbs over is a disgrace to all professionals. She’s not getting out of this fight that easy. Fight is still on. ABCNation get ready. #ufc224 strawweight vs flyweight tomorrow night in Brazil — Amanda Bobby Cooper (@ABCnation115) May 11, 2018 Amanda Bobby Cooper is going to fight Saturday at UFC 224 , despite her opponent badly missing weight by seven pounds. Mackenzie Dern hit the scale at 123 pounds during early weigh-ins Friday morning and she will lose 30 percent of her show money, 20 percent of which will go to Cooper, with the remaining 10 percent going to CABMMA. Nevertheless, the finalist of the 23th season of “The Ultimate Fighter” accepted the bout at a catchweight that the fighter called on her social media properties a “strawweight vs flyweight” bout. “[The situation] is incredibly unprofessional, I mean she basically weighed in for the next class up from me,” Cooper said to Sherdog.com. “The reason I chose to still fight is because I worked too hard to have this opportunity taken from me, I’m a fighter, it’s what I live for.

#UFC224 Damn. Great KO. Good fight but I was expecting a more competitive fight. I gotta admit I did feel I wasn't on Kelleher's hype but he kept surprising me. Now I wonder if I was right because... he's limited. And when you think about how TJ dominated and destroyed JL.

UFC 139 Shogun Rua vs. Dan Henderson Next UFC Hall of Fame Fight | MMAWeekly.com

“The first fight between Dan Henderson and Shogun Rua is one of the best fights I’ve ever seen,” UFC President Dana White said. “This fight represents everything that’s great about UFC and the sport of mixed martial arts. Dan came out dropping bombs and took control of the first three rounds, while Shogun was able to absorb a ton of punishment, win the fourth and push the fight to the brink in the fifth. This fight was so good that it was named the 2011 Fight of the Year and is still considered one of the top five fights in UFC history.  Congratulations to Dan Henderson and Shogun Rua on a fight that will forever be considered one of the greatest of all-time!”
