All of Amanda Nunes' wins in her homeland have ended early, but challenger Raquel Pennington has a history of going the distance. Gastelum Edges Souza on Scorecards "The Ultimate Fighter 17" victor Kelvin Gastelum made his latest move toward a title shot at 185 pounds, as he eked out a split decision against former Strikeforce champion Ronaldo Souza in the co-main event.
UFC 224 was a top-to-bottom fantastic card filled with great fights and plenty of stoppages. On the flip side, if Gastelum keeps it standing then the fight should be his.
"I feel like I need to beat him and make a statement", Gastelum said, per Matt Erickson and Fernanda Prates of MMAjunkie. It is expected that the victor will next fight middleweight champion Robert Whittaker, assuming he takes care of business as a solid betting favorite over Yoel Romero at UFC 225 next month. That first-round KO of Bisping last time out in the main event of the November 25 Fight Night card felt like Gastelum officially making it. She's going to try to exhaust me. Perez assured fans what they saw tonight was the real Perez and not the fighter from his UFC debut (a decision loss at UFC Fight Night 123). Former bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey defended her belt six times, a record for a woman fighter.
Pence lauds Trump's leadership at IN rally
Trump teased something new on health care soon and touted the repeal of the law's individual mandate previous year . Trump also mentioned how he greeted the three Americans who were detained in North Korea.
Vitor Belfort claims that this will be his last fight.
According to oddsmakers, Nunes is a -1000 favorite over Pennington, who is a +650 underdog. It'll be a tall task as Lineker has gone 7-1 in his last eight bouts and his only loss in that span was to reigning bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw.
"I think that would be an unbelievable next step for MMA as a sport, to openly welcome male athletes to come out as well, but that's not just mixed martial arts, that's sport across the board", says combat sports journalist Nick Peet.
Strawweight Amanda Cooper discusses her baby food diet. It did not start well for Gastelum (15-3, 10-3 UFC), who was forced to survive a harrowing ground exchange with the submission savant in the first round. Nunes tends to use forward pressure along with feints and a pawing jab to open up her striking game. With blood pouring from her Nose, Pennington surrendered her back and made no attempt to defend herself from the punches that followed, forcing referee Marc Goddard's hand. That was Nunes' first bout to go five rounds.
