Pros React To Nunes Vs. Pennington & More

UFC is broadcasting the full event live via YouTube.

UFC 224 features bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes defending her title against Raquel Pennington in the main event, and four other matches on the main card.

That ill-thought-out approach resulted in her being taken down and eating more strikes on her back. The cardio of Nunes seems to no longer be in question, as she looked fresh as a daisy entering the "championship rounds".

Pennington's corner implored her to move forward on the champion, which she did well in the second round.

Around 64 percent of voters exercised their franchise as polling for the Assembly elections was held on Saturday. The Grand Old Party proved that it is no better compared to other parties on this.

Round two was underway and a body kick was there for Nunes.

"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. Nunes connected with a spinning back kick to the body. The round ended with both fighters throwing leather. Nunes adjusted in the third round and from there it was pretty much domination. A combination was there for "The Lioness". The fight was stood back up.

Looking for a finish, Nunes upped the ante late in the fourth, landing some big knees on "Rocky". The right eye of Pennington showed some swelling.

Nunes is rightly considered a huge favourite in this fight, but this is mixed martial arts... literally anything can happen!

The official death toll climbed from an initial two killed and may include those who succumbed to injuries in hospital. A spokesman for Indonesia's church association (PGI) called on the government for more help on security at churches.

In the fourth round, Nunes turned up the pressure and landed some hard punches.

Meanwhile, Nunes was racking up damage to Pennington's lead leg, which was streaked with pink and purple from the first round on. A knee to the head was there for Nunes.

Nunes said winning against her friend Pennington was the hardest challenge she had to face in her career.

Before the round began, Pennington told her corner that she was done.

Ferguson famously described his mission upon joining United from Aberdeen in 1986 as knocking Liverpool "off their perch". "The club has had a great man for many, many years playing football and now his body says 'it's enough'".

A dominant fourth round saw a weird 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. A ton of blood poured from Pennington's nose.
