UFC Announce Massive Title Fight As Headliner For UFC 224 In Rio

UFC women's bantamweight champion Amanada Nunes is set to defend her title against Raquel Pennington in the main event of UFC 224.

Although Nunes (15-4 MMA, 8-1 UFC) vs. Pennington (9-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC) was expected, UFC President Dana White toyed with the idea of scrapping it to ensure a champion vs. champion showdown between Nunes and featherweight titleholder Cyborg (20-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC).

Jeff Hardy's arrest for DWI didn't take long to sweep the internet, and WWE has already issued a statement on the incident. More details may come out from Hardy's arrest and whether it will affect his standing in the company remains to be seen.

Pennington enters her first UFC title match on a four fight winning streak, most recently with a victory over Tate at UFC 205. Pennington's only two losses in the UFC were split decisions to Jessica Andrade in 2013 - a loss she avenged with a submission win two years later - and to Holly Holm in 2015.

In her most recent bout, she successfully retained her title against Valentina Shevchenko by split decision in September at UFC 215. She's calling me out, and I can fight her in July. Pennington made her promotional debut for UFC against Roxanne Modaffieri as a result of "The Ultimate Fighter 18" finale, winning by unanimous decision. However, Cyborg expressed when asked about that possibility that it was just too soon. Following Cyborg's TKO win over Yana Kunitskaya this past Saturday, White said he would consider making the super fight next. She's a beast. The fight to make is her and Nunes. Nunes wants the fight, she wants the fight, I want the fight, I'm sure the fans want to see it, too.
