Amanda Nunes vs Raquel Pennington full fight video preview for UFC 224 main event

The winner could be in line for this super fight.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is just a few hours away from its women’s bantamweight title fight between current division champion Amanda Nunes and top contender Raquel Pennington, who collide in the UFC 224 pay-per-view (PPV) main event TONIGHT (May 12, 2018) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Nunes (15-4) hasn’t competed since Sept. of 2017 where she outpointed Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 215. Prior to that, “Lioness” had an even better showing by knocking out former division titleholder Ronda Rousey in under two minutes.

As for Pennington (9-5), she fought her way up the 135-pound ladder by winning four in a row and hasn’t tasted defeat since dropping a close split-decision to another former champion, Holly Holm, way back in 2015.

Check out their fight video preview embedded above.
