Amanda Nunes was looking for a decisive win tonight at UFC 224, and the bantamweight champ went out and got just that.
Nunes came out firing a steady stream of leg kicks and heavy punches, and while Pennington hung tough, she was outgunned in most of the exchanges. After round four, it sounded like Pennington told her corner that she was done, but her coaches told her to keep fighting. Pennington appeared to have broken her nose in the frame.
In round five, Nunes continued to punish the bloodied Pennington, and the fight was eventually stopped.
