Amanda Cooper responds to Mackenzie Dern missing weight at UFC 224

Amanda Nunes

Amanda Nunes

Nunes did require a decision during her most recent title defense against Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 215 in September 2017. With that said, I don't think it's happening. This fight seems like the UFC is giving Dern another tune-up match, bringing her along slowly before facing some tougher competition, similar to what college football programs do at the beginning of the season. She's going to have to show more if she wants to live up to the potential that has been affixed to her since she even discussed a transition to MMA. Nunes is unsafe on the feet and has done away with her cardio issues. If she can get through the initial onslaught, Pennington has a chance. Some questioned whether or not Rousey should have fought a tune-up fight first in order get her bearings first. Middleweight Jacare Souza arrives in Brazil and has a friendly interaction with the coach of his opponent, Kelvin Gastelum, who manages to enjoy his time in hostile territory. While Gastelum will turn 27 this fall, Souza turns 39 just before the winter. There are few fighters who are better than Jacare on the ground and Gastelum will have to ensure he does not get taken down or gets up quickly if taken down.

This represents a classic bout in MMA. Though Souza has the home crowd edge, I think Gastelum scores the upset. "If I don't make a statement, I don't think I'll be able to contend for the title next".

"It's extremely exciting, just the fact for where women's MMA has come to today, and that we have this opportunity and here we are, headlining a UFC event". She missed weight again before her bout with Amanda Cooper.

Dragon float catches on fire during Disney's Magic Kingdom parade
According to reports, the fire was extinguished without incident and no one was injured. except for the float. A dragon float from the movie Maleficent caught fire at Disney World's Magic Kingdom Friday afternoon.

The twilight of their careers have followed nearly identical paths, both ending three-fight losing streaks with decision victories in their last outings. It was the most hard in my career.

"Definitely this fight I'm going to make a statement". But Nunes is the better fighter and has the power to give Pennington her first knockout loss. While Dern calls the US home, she's the daughter of legendary Brazilian MMA fighter Wellington "Megaton" Dias so Dern, a renowned Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioner who earned her black belt at age 19, will certainly be the fan favorite here.

Brian Kelleher will know if he can rise to the occasion tonight. It'll be a tall task as Lineker has gone 7-1 in his last eight bouts and his only loss in that span was to reigning bantamweight champion T.J. Dillashaw.
