Fight fans were pouring into the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil over the weekend, as the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) was hosting another exciting night of fights. Now a controversial video from the night’s main event has made its way to the internet.
The world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion hosted the highly anticipated fight card of UFC 224 on Saturday night, May 12, for fight fans world wide. In the night’s live pay-per-view main event, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes put on another dominant performance.
The fighter went toe-to-toe with rising challenger Raquel Pennington. Pennington suffered some brutal strikes in the match, leading to the fighter opening up a dialogue with her corner in between the fourth and final round of the fight.
During the moment, Pennington revealed to her corner that she was “done.” However, the fighter’s corner was able to convince her to continue competing in the match.
Pennington would go on to suffer a TKO loss within the final round of her match against the reigning champion. Check out a replay of Pennington’s moment with her corner within the video above.
