Amanda Nunes says Raquel Pennington's corner failed her by not throwing in towel at UFC 224

“It’s sad,” Nunes told reporters, including MMAjunkie, through an interpreter at the UFC 224 post-fight news conference. “(My girlfriend) Nina (Ansaroff) told me. I didn’t even know. Nina told me in the locker room. It’s sad because you could avoid something. She went to the hospital. It might be a bad injury for her to go to the hospital. I already asked Nina to text her – if she needs anything I’m here. It’s sad.

Matches to Make After UFC 224

Pooled blood on the canvas told the story: The Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s bantamweight title was going nowhere. Amanda Nunes retained the 135-pound crown with yet another one-sided performance, as she disposed of Raquel Pennington with punches in the fifth round of their UFC 224 main event on Saturday at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Her nose mangled by an earlier knee strike from the clinch, Pennington succumbed to blows 2:36 into Round 5. It was as if the Octagon had become a crime scene, lacking only the yellow tape. Nunes was in complete control for most of the fight, slowly walking her game but outmatched challenger into a trap from which there was no escape. According to FightMetric data, the champion nearly doubled Pennington in terms of significant strikes, 124-64, answered a takedown with three of her own and outperformed “The Ultimate Fighter 18” semifinalist in the following categories: head strikes (72-49), body strikes (31-10), leg strikes (21-5), strikes from distance (96-56), clinch strikes (15-7) and ground strikes (13-1).

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!”

Amanda Nunes: It’s ‘Sad’ That Coaches Made Pennington Continue in Fifth Round at UFC 224

Amanda Nunes gradually inflicted more and more damage on Raquel Pennington as their UFC 224 headlining bout progressed, so much so that Pennington didn’t want to continue after the fourth round. In her corner before the final frame, Pennington told her coaches that she was “done.” However, her team urged her to continue, telling the bantamweight “we’ll recover later.” Pennington didn’t have much to offer Nunes in round five, as her nose appeared to be broken and was bleeding profusely. The Brazilian champion finished off her victory with a barrage of ground-and-pound. Pennington, who was gushing blood, could only cover up until referee Marc Goddard stepped in to wave off the fight at the 2:36 mark of round five. Nunes wasn’t aware of the exchange between Pennington and her corner until after the fight. “It’s sad. Nina [Ansaroff] told me in the locker room. I didn’t even know,” Nunes said at the post-fight press conference. “It’s sad because you could avoid something. She went to the hospital. It might be a bad injury for her to go to the hospital.

UFC 224 Prelims: Cezar Ferreira Chokes Karl Roberson Unconscious in Rio de Janeiro

Cezar Ferreira put Karl Roberson to sleep pic.twitter.com/wIsvv4SSsd — FOX Sports: UFC (@UFCONFOX) May 13, 2018 Karl Roberson woke up looking at the lights, likely with little recollection of how he got there. The previously unbeaten Roberson was choked unconscious by a first-round arm-triangle choke from “The Ultimate Fighter Brazil” winner Cezar Ferreira in the featured UFC 224 prelim on Saturday at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro. Ferreira (13-6, 9-4 UFC) closed the deal 4:45 into Round 1 and continued his ascent in the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s middleweight division. Roberson (6-1, 1-1 UFC) fought to stay upright but nevertheless conceded two takedowns. Ferreira transitioned to mount with roughly a minute remaining in the first round, applied his ground-and-pound and shifted his attention to the choke. Roberson went limp in a matter of seconds.

Tecia Torres: Raquel Pennington agrees with coach sending her out for Round 5 at UFC 224

#Forever I am extremely proud of my lady. You are a warrior babe. Fought every second you possibly could. You continue to amaze me daily. You motivate me to work hard and one day too receive the same opportunity to fight for a UFC championship. We are the 1%ers. Very few will ever know what we go thru as fighters and an even smaller percentage will ever earn the chance to fight on such a big stage and for a world title. #RideOrDie #AlwaysProud PS: Both us and our coaches agree with the decision made to go into the 5th round. We know Raquel more than anyone else and know if we let her give up on herself going into the last round she would have always regretted it. She fought with heart and grit until the end. PSS: Exactly one year ago today you asked me to marry you, I can't freaking wait to wife you! 💍 @raquel_pennington

“I miss it. I never stopped missing it. And I kind of hadn’t really thought about it much. And then when he brought it up and we started getting going, and I started training and I started doing stuff again, getting ready to try to take this on, it made me go, ‘You know what, what if he pulls out? Am I not going to fight? Am I going to do all of this and not fight?’ Oh no, we have to have somebody back it up, and if it doesn’t work out with him, I’m going to give it a shot. It’ll be somebody else, one of the guys from my past probably, most likely, and we’ll see where I’m at.”

U.S. Supreme Court strikes down sports gambling ban, so is MMA about to become a gambler's paradise?

Maybe. The major sports leagues have done plenty of lobbying on both sides of this issue, and there’s still a lot to be sorted out. The NBA and MLB are even pushing for a 1 percent “sports integrity fee” on bets, which leagues have said they would use to fund anti-corruption efforts. There’s also the chance that, if states start coming up with wildly varying laws on sports gambling, there will be an eventual push for a federal law to sort it all out.
