At UFC 224, Raquel Pennington lost to Amanda Nunes in the main event. The pair were battling for the UFC women’s bantamweight title. However, between the fourth and fifth rounds, Pennington told her corner she was done. Rather than listen to her, they sent her back out for the fifth where she was summarily TKO’d.
In this episode of the podcast, we examine the arguments in favor of sending Pennington back into the fifth and demonstrate, one by one, why none are convincing. We also dig into Davi Ramos’s win over Nick Hein. This is the Monday Morning Analyst with Luke Thomas.
