AMANDA NUNES defeated her friend RAQUEL “ROCKY” PENNINGTON defending and fighting as UFC bantamweight champion in her hometown of Brazil. Working her legs; Amanda got Raquel down a couple of times quickly. Amanda’s striking was sharp and complete as well. She had Raquel back peddling looking to counter. When they did exchange Nunes got the better of each one. Raquel seemed to catch a second wind early in the third round. Amanda scored another takedown and did some work on top. As the pounding continued Raquel’s left eye had a mouse and swelled. While Nunes didn’t throw everything and the kitchen sink at Raquel; the damage from her piston like strikes was beyond evident. Pennington didn’t quit; showing heart but it was an uphill climb standing in oil. It appeared as if she didn’t want to come out for the final round but was urged to by her corner. Raquel did look to strike but got taken down and was blasted. Amanda bloodied and broke Raquel’s nose and hammered away till the TKO came at 2:36. With the bantamweight division running on the thin side; it may be time to look at and seriously consider a match-up vs Cyborg.
