Amanda Nunes thinks coaches failed Raquel Pennington at UFC 224

Raquel Pennington

Considering the insights Kutz has on Pennington? And I've had that conversation with Raquel and I know how tough she is, I'm not going to treat her any different than I would treat a guy.

UFC fighter Raquel Pennington sparked a national conversation after her coaches convinced her to return to the octagon after she said she was "done". "I was scared to step in and actually let my hands go, because the minute I would start to close the distance, Amanda would attack the leg". At the end of the day, my coaches know me best.

Pennington said her nose is not broken, but she is seeking medical attention for her left leg. Pennington broke the leg in an ATV accident a year ago, and she said she felt as if Nunes rebroke it with a kick early in the fight. So when she said she wanted out, there was an overwhelming sense that her coaches were in the wrong to tell her otherwise. She then lost via technical knockout a mere two minutes later. The extent of the injury to Pennington's leg is unknown at this stage as she said the medical treatment she received after the fight in Rio de Janeiro was "terrible" and her fiancee Tecia Torres and her made a decision to wait until they were back in the United States to seek further medical attention.

Now, the Liverpool legend is turning his attention to the defence and is keen on bringing the 21-year-old centre back to Ibrox. Gerrard said of McGregor: 'He is a vastly experienced goalkeeper who we feel can add to the options available to us now .

"I know that I deserve to be a champion", Kaufman said on The MMA Hour.

It was clear that Pennington was outmatched and had already taken some heavy hits from the champion, but her coaches did not offer her any relief. Prior to Saturday, she had not fought since November 2016 due to injuries.

During the UFC 224 telecast, Pennington could be heard telling her corner after the fourth round, "I'm done". Looks like her Spartan side won this time. And the thing is, like I said, the mentality of her at that moment, I just felt if she could somehow flip it around and go out there and do something extraordinary, we got a chance.

Still, as the fight progressed, Kutz realized the possible outcomes increasingly favored Nunes and that Pennington would need to pull off something incredible to turn the tide. 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. "So when she said what she said, when she looked me in the eye, I knew that's not what she wanted to do".

"I wouldn't have given her a pep-talk to get her to go into the fifth round if I didn't think she had an extraordinary effort inside of her". Pennington said that during the fifth round the knee felt like it was going to explode and was happy to at least try and fight on. "She poured her whole heart out there, and I don't think she's going to regret that decision".

"And now, she doesn't have to do that in 10 years. Pennington told Helwani she knew something was wrong with her leg as soon as Nunes" landed the very first kick. She admitted that she would have been mad if the fight had been conceded on the stool. "Cupcake" gave her take in an interview with SiriusXM Rush. "What more as an athlete, what more as a coach, can somebody ask?"
