UFC Fighters Overwhelmingly Destroy Pennington’s Corner For Stoppage Refusal

The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) hosted another stunning night of fights over the weekend. However, the fight night did not go without its controversy.

The world’s most famous mixed martial arts promotion was in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday, May 12, to host the highly anticipated fight card of UFC 224. Fight fans quickly began pouring into the Jeunesse Arena for the card’s series of exciting match ups.

Headlining the event, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes went toe-to-toe with rising challenger Raquel Pennington. Nunes put on a dominant performance over her opponent.

In between the fourth and final round, Pennington confided in her corner that she was “done.” Rather than informing the referee and having the fight stopped, the fighter’s corner convinced Pennington to finish out the fight.

Pennington would go on to suffer a tough TKO loss to Nunes within the final round of the fight. Taking to social media, many of the UFC’s competitors have since come forward with critical messages concerning Pennington’s corner.
