#5 UFC 224: Nunes vs. Pennington
The main pay-per-view of 2018 to be held in Brazil, UFC 224 resembled a much needed refresher after a few disillusioning enormous shows as UFC 222 and UFC 223. It did not have the greatest names on show – it just completed 85,000 purchases in certainty because of a more fragile main event between Amanda Nunes and Raquel Pennington – however as far as activity, no one who ordered could gripe.
We got one of 2018’s best knockouts as Lyoto Machida’s mind blowing front kick KO of Vitor Belfort; a wild fight between John Lineker and Brian Kelleher finishing in a vicious knockout; and a super-snappy complete from hot prospect Mackenzie Dern, who thumped down and gagged out Amanda Cooper in a little more than 2 minutes.
While the headliner transformed into somewhat of a slower, drawn-out undertaking with Nunes gradually destroying Pennington on the way to a fifth round TKO, the co-headliner was the best battle on offer. Jacare Souza and Kelvin Gastelum set on a back-and-forward war, with Jacare commanding the first round with his hooking before Gastelum figured out how to return with his more grounded striking to take a razor-close part choice.
This was a show crammed with completions – close by Jacare versus Gastelum, just a single other battle on the 13-fight card took care of business – and for its sheer diversion esteem, it unquestionably has a place on this rundown.
