MMA DFS Playbook: UFC 224 - Nunes vs. Pennington

Amanda Nunes

Saturday didn't provide almost the suspense as Nunes continually battered Raquel Pennington at UFC 224 for her seventh straight win and third since taking the belt from Miesha Tate in 2016. Pennington kept having to adjust her top. But we are going to leave this cage and have a beer and celebrate our friendship. The bout marks the third time Nunes will be defending the belt, since she submitted Miesha Tate in 2016.

Despite offering very little in terms of offense, Pennington did keep the champion on her toes with some well-placed counter punches, though they had little effect on "The Lioness".

A dominant fourth round saw a freaky and absurd end as at the end of the round, Pennington returned to the corner and wanted out of the fight, due to a broken twisted nose. The referee stepped in as she landed a series of grounded shots to Pennington, who suffered a broken nose during the fight.

The co-main saw middleweight Kelvin Gastelum clashed with #3 Ronaldo Souza.

Mackenzie Dern once again missed the weight limit during Friday's weigh-in, and her fight with Amanda Cooper is now a catchweight contest.

It will be Dern's second fight in UFC.

Next up, John Lineker continued to prove he is one of the most unsafe fighters in the lightweight divisions after scoring a third-round finish of Brian Kelleher via KO.

"Hands of Stone" started the final stanza in a more tentative fashion, but exploded into action in the final two minutes, rattling Kelleher with looping hooks.

In his post-fight interview, Lineker called on Dana White to book him for a title fight.

Former UFC Lightheavyweight winners Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida will Meet every other at the first struggle of the chief card, and it is expected To function as former farewell bout.

Gastelum said: "I expected to win, but I wanted to finish the fight and guarantee the title shot". 'If you want to retire you have to fight me first'.
