Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are back to break down this week’s UFC card in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. With picks and odds for every bout on the card. From Amanda Nunes vs. Raquel Pennington in the main event, down to James Bochnovic vs. Markus Perez in the opening prelims.
After two weeks off, the UFC returns, with a PPV card that’s… fine. There are a lot of little things to like about UFC 224, but it’s hard to point to anything big, outside of Nunes and Pennington making history as the first out, gay fighters to headline a major fight card. Otherwise even with names like Jacare Souza, Vitor Belfort, and Lyoto Machida dotting the PPV, it’s hard to feel like any one fight carries the weight of a $60 price tag.
