UFC 224 Results: Amanda Nunes stops Raquel Pennington in 5th round

Title challenger Raquel Pennington gave just about everything she had at UFC 224 against champion Amanda Nunes over four grueling rounds of action. "If you're not retired, you've gotta fight me first!" Tate continues, "I think she's going to say, "I'm glad I went out in the fifth round".

The Brazilian dominated the bout against Pennington in her homeland and was eventually declared the victor when the referee stepped in to stop the fight 2:36 minutes into Round 5 via a technical knockout. A Nunes knee appeared to break Pennington's nose and with the result looking like a foregone conclusion, she told her corner that she had had enough.

The end of the fight was an unfortunate one, with Pennington telling her corner "I'm done" at the end of the fourth.

Nunes, who beat Ronda Rousey in the latter's most recent MMA fight, dominated the fight. It's sad. Everyone must be saying a lot of bad things about him on social media, but I really think she needs to surround herself with people who want the best for her so she can really evolve for her next fights.

But Pennington didn't have anything left in the tank, and Nunes went in for the finish, pinning Pennington on her back around the 3:00 mark.

"Unfortunately, tonight (her corner man) failed".

RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - MAY 12: Amanda Nunes of Brazil submit Raquel Pennington of the United States in their women's bantamweight bout during the UFC 224 event at Jeunesse Arena on May 12, 2018 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She went out there, and she got finished. "It was the hardest fight in my career".

As for Pennington, she showed incredible toughness throughout the fight, although her corner didn't do her any favors by not stopping the contest when their athlete said she was done. But I had to defend the belt.

"We are friends. We're gonna leave this cage (and) we're gonna have a beer and celebrate our friendship".

Despite it being a successful night for Nunes, whose win is arguably going to fuel further talk of a massive Brazilian super fight against Cris Cyborg, it's Pennington's cornermen that have stolen the headlines for all of the wrong reasons.
