UFC 224 preview: Nunes on home turf vs. Pennington

UFC 224 preview: Nunes on home turf vs. Pennington

We can talk about Dern's future another time, but I've got her winning again.

The middleweight bout between Vitor Belfort (26-13, 1 NC), the last remaining active victor of the prehistoric UFC one-night tournaments, against former light heavyweight champion Lyoto Machida (23-8) is expected to be the final fight of Belfort's career. Pennington is engaged to UFC strawweight Tecia Torres, who used to train with Nunes in South Florida. Having said that, Nunes is a tremendous fighter and if she can perform at the level we know she can, I expect her to retain the title at home.

The Brazilian has won 11 of his last 13 fights but saw his title charge derailed when he was knocked out by now reigning champion Robert Whittaker past year. She's only gone the distance in fights against Shevchenko in the UFC and lost her only other fight that made it out of the first round.

Check below for breakdowns, odds and picks on every fight from Las Vegas Sun's Ray Brewer (31-12 year to date), ESPN Radio's Steve Cofield (28-15), KSNV's Randy Howe (27-16) and Las Vegas Sun's Case Keefer (23-20). Gastelum is looking to string together wins at 185 after knocking out former champion Michael Bisping in under 90 seconds in November. Dias will be in attendance. Just two writers believe ABC will defeat Dern. A third had it for Yoder, 29-28. Look for Souza to bait Gastelum to taking the fight to the ground and getting a submission later in the fight. Cooper is an even 2-2 in the Octagon and is coming off a TKO of Angela Magana.

Therefore, she added, any change in the size of the USA forces in the South Korea should not be on the table at the summit. The United States aspires to have North Korea as a "close partner" and not an enemy, the USA secretary of state has said.

Lineker is a Brazilian ranked sixth in the bantamweight division, whose champion is TJ Dillashaw. The fights went on as planned under a catchweight, and Dern won both. Five of those fighters ended up not competing.

Kelleher, from the US, has just one loss in his past 10: to Vera in July 2017 by unanimous decision. Gastelum has great striking but has shown that he has a weakness on the mat. For Kelleher, the matchup might be too big of a step up in caliber.

Two Brazilian fighting legends collide in a middleweight contest tonight. Belfort achieved the same feat by earning a decision of Nate Marquardt. Belfort is a former UFC light-heavyweight champion who claims this will be his final fight.

This will be only the fourth time that Belfort faces a fellow Brazilian professionally; he's 1-2. He snapped a three-fight losing streak in February by beating Eryk Anders. Machida was suspended 18 months from 2015-17 due to a positive drug test.
