UFC women's bantamweight champion Amanada Nunes is set to defend her title against Raquel Pennington in the main event of UFC 224. Instead she will defend her strap in front of a home crowd against Raquel Pennington at UFC 224.

Thats an impressive run given that prior to that, Rocky's' career record was just 5-5, though most of her losses were to high-level opposition such as Holly Holm, Jessica Andrade, Cat Zingano and Leslie Smith. Following Cyborg's TKO win over Yana Kunitskaya this past Saturday, White said he would consider making the super fight next.

In October of 2017 Pennington suffered a severe leg injury in an ATV accident during a hunting trip, putting a planned December fight against Nunes on hold.

The bantamweight champ Nunes (15-4) is coming off a split decision win over Valentina Shevchenko, which was her second victory to date over the notable fighter. Although she has not fought since UFC 205, I'm sure she'll be raring to go come May twelfth.

Pennington (9-5) is on a win streak of her own, coming away with her hand raised in her last four bouts. However, Cyborg expressed when asked about that possibility that it was just too soon. The potential fight between Nunes and the featherweight champion would take a big hit if Pennington were to emerge victorious. "I'm not calling [Nunes] out".

The event will take place in Rio de Janeiro at the Jeunesse Arena and will also feature previously announced bouts between Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida and Jacare Souza and Kelvin Gastelum.
