Amanda Nunes Says Raquel Pennington's Corner Failed Her at UFC 224

  • Amanda Nunes When Will Amanda Nunes Get the Recognition She Deserves? Mike Pendlet

"I would have done the same thing if I were in her corner's shoes". "Change your mindset", was the advice she got back from a coach, identified by multiple outlets as Jason Kutz. We know Raquel more than anyone else and know if we let her give up on herself going into the last round she would have always regretted it.

Ultimately, the 29-year-old bantamweight title challenger listened to her corner and went back out for the fifth.

"It's sad", Nunes said at the post-fight news conference, via MMAJunkie.

"It's sad, because you could avoid something", Nunes said. "I think my coach wouldn't have let me go through that". In between the fourth and final round, Raquel Pennington could be heard telling her corner "I'm done", to which she was met with a pep talk to give it all she's got. "Unfortunately, tonight he failed".

Did Pennington's corner fail her? But maybe not in the way others seem to think. It's important to have that friendship with your coach and for the coach to understand the athlete. They viewed it as a matter of black and white. However, she said something that created a heavy gap between diehard and fighter-protect fans.

Unless you can do that, and you go in the direction of the flawless squad, you have to keep players you don't love. He also admitted that Manchester United need to invest more to reach the level of rivals Manchester City .

That's the part I can't agree with.

"I've never fought nobody as a friend". I don't think it happens enough. I already asked Nina to text her to find out if she needs anything, I'm here. Should Raquel Pennington's corner have thrown in the towel? And in my mind, it comes down to two answers. Pennington could land a takedown, and Nunes could suffer some awkward, fight-ending injury during the fall.

Amanda Nunes is STILL the UFC bantamweight champion.

Nunes mentioned how her 18-month layoff might have impacted her conditioning, and led to her asking out early. She was really doing a lot of damage to Pennington's front leg and throwing a lot of 1-2's that Pennington really could not counter. With the benefit of hindsight, of course, we can say it should have.

This was just an extremely dominant performance from Amanda Nunes and I really hope we get to see Amanda Nunes vs Chris Cyborg next.
