Heavy Hands: Can Pennington trouble Nunes?

58 0

Connor and Pat preview the main card of UFC 224, miraculously breaking it all down while trying to avoid thinking about Belfort vs Machida.

Our holiday away from UFC coverage is over. Fedor was fun, right? And how about Kyoji Horiguchi? He won his fight in about one tenth of one percent of the time we spent analyzing his style! Amazing! But now it’s UFC season once again, and the world’s premiere MMA promotion has gifted us with a card that is… well, it’s fine.

This week, we discuss:

  • Raquel Pennington: the best of a bad division, or a legitimate threat to Amanda Nunes’ belt?
  • Kelvin Gastelum’s strangely static style
  • Mackenzie Dern’s pugilistic potential
  • John Lineker vs Brian Kelleher
  • vitorbelfortvslyotomachida
