John Pollock reviews the UFC 224 card from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Amanda Nunes retains the UFC bantamweight title over Raquel Pennington with a dominant performance and heavily debated decision by Pennington’s corner to send her out for the final round of the fight, Kelvin Gastelum narrowly edges Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, Mackenzie Dern misses weight and submits Amanda Cooper, Vitor Belfort’s retirement fight, and a tremendous undercard with lots of big finishes.
