UFC 224 Results: Amanda Nunes, Kelvin Gastelum Claim Victories

Grant SmithMay 13, 2018

Should be an interesting battle with walkers being allowed in the cage of a sanctioned MMA competition for the first time ever! She will be defending her title against American fighter Raquel Pennington in what should be a great fight. Pennington hasn't fought since November 2016 because of multiple injuries. That run included her forty-eight second decimation of Ronda Rousey, who has since left the sport well alone, pursuing a career in the WWE. If it not for the fact that Nunes and Pennington are pretty close friends, Pennington could have been in harm's way even more than she already was.

Colorado's Raquel Pennington will look to dethrone the 135-pound champion. He has used his vastly improved striking skills to win 10 of his last 12 fights, with the only losses coming to middleweight champ Robert Whittaker and the man he will fight for the belt next month, Yoel Romero. Nunes likes to come forward and strike and Pennington is known for utilizing her wrestling to grind out victories. She also scored three takedowns and floored Pennington twice. If she can get through the initial onslaught, Pennington has a chance.

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

"Combat sports (and) mixed martial arts can be very masculine sports, and it takes a very fearless woman to find her way into an MMA gym and start fighting alongside the men". When we review the 5Dimes UFC odds, we can see that Las Vegas and online betting outlets also believe that the dragon is alive.

"Definitely this fight I'm going to make a statement". A knockout win wouldn't surprise me for Gastelum, but I think Jacare gets it done in his home country. I want to keep my belt. "It would be wonderful 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". Neither of those two are considered elite strikers, but still, those fights exemplified how quickly things can get out of hand in a Nunes fight. Change your mindset. Throw her everything we got.

I expect a back and forth fight in the co-main. I'm sure there are.

While both have slowed down hugely and lost their chins, you have to fancy Belfort who still retains that famous knockout power. They would not only be celebrated, but championed as well.

One of the hidden themes surrounding the main event of UFC 224 is the history behind it.

And Lyoto Machida (-260) is favored against Vitor Belfort (+200) in a middleweight bout between two aging Brazilian fighters, the latter of whom has said this will be his last fight.

It promises to be an emotional night.
