UFC Announce Massive Title Fight As Headliner For UFC 224 In Rio

12 March 2018

The UFC today made official a women's bantamweight title fight between champ Nunes and Raquel Pennington.

However, it seems they've opted to just proceed with this match-up instead and it'll see the 29-year-old Nunes attempting to defend her 135lb title for the third time, having already defeated Ronda Rousey and Valentina Shevchenko during her current reign.

As for Nunes (15-4 MMA, 8-1 UFC), a fight on her home turf in Brazil will be the first time she fights in her country since wining the bantamweight title. She's has beaten Jessica Andrade, Bethe Correia, Elizabeth Phillips and Miesha Tate on her way to gaining a chance to fight for the title. Now she gets her shot at Nunes, who is on a six-fight win streak.

This fight between Amanda Nunes and Raquel Pennington were expected to fight at the UFC 224 card, but after Cyborg's impressive performance at UFC 222, Dana White was thinking about swapping out the fighters.

Pennington (9-5) is riding a four fight winning streak, and is coming off a decision victory over former champ, Miesha Tate. However, Cyborg expressed when asked about that possibility that it was just too soon. She cuts a tremendous amount of weight to make the featherweight limit of 145 pounds, so the UFC decided on Nunes-Pennington. "Nunes wants the fight, she wants the fight, I want the fight, I'm sure the fans want to see it, too, so we'll get that one going". "I'm not calling [Nunes] out". The bout, which was previously reported by MMAjunkie, is set to headline the UFC 224 pay-per-view May 12 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, with prelims airing on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
