The UFC 224 fight card gets stronger every day.

The UFC is targeting a matchup between women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes and Raquel Pennington for the pay-per-view, two people with knowledge of the situation told MMAjunkie. They requested anonymity because the UFC has yet to make an official announcement, although one side already has agreed to the bout.

UFC 224 takes place May 12 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro. The event’s main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Always like rocky. I hope she pulls this off but I don't like her chances.

Maybe Brian Kelleher vs Lineker if Brian can get cleared in time. He wants that fight and UFC 224 seems like the right place to do it.

I was going to gripe/piss/moan about other contenders. But when I looked at the rankings, the fight makes sense. No other viable contenders. Rocky is the best option barring a rematch with Holm. This division is shallow as all hell. Shevchenko you might argue has the title shot but she left the division. Right now, the queen of excuses has none.

If Amanda Nunes fights the same way she did against Schevchenko the second time then she is practically unbeatable.
