UFC 224 official weigh-in - Raquel Pennington vs. Amanda Nunes

BC-CAR--NASCAR-Shevchenko

UFC 224 Embedded, Episode 4On Episode 4 of UFC 224 Embedded, middleweight Lyoto Machida trains at a facility in Rio.

In the main event, UFC women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes defended her title for a third time when she dominated Raquel Pennington via a fifth-round TKO finish after badly bloodying and breaking her nose.

Many expect Nunes to make it three title defences in a row on Saturday night, but the defending champion will need to be on her guard against a gritty underdog who plans to cause a huge upset. "They called me like, 'Are you okay?' I said: 'Don't worry you guys, it's okay". 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.

What also will help Raquel Pennington against Amanda Nunes is her will. Bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington gets some physical therapy after her long trip to Brazil. I've got Nunes via stoppage. Look for Souza to bait Gastelum to taking the fight to the ground and getting a submission later in the fight.

This represents a classic bout in MMA. Souza wants to remain in that mix and he will nearly certainly do that if the fight hits the ground. A knockout win wouldn't surprise me for Gastelum, but I think Jacare gets it done in his home country. Middleweight Vitor Belfort and his service dog greet UFC Hall of Famer Minotauro Nogueira, and strawweight Mackenzie Dern does interviews.

Cooper was not pleased to find out about Dern's weight troubles and took to Twitter to air her frustrations. Tate was also on the downside of her career. With higher caliber opponents, that is a grave mistake. That belt is in my house and I never want that belt to go anywhere.

Brian Kelleher will know if he can rise to the occasion tonight. Since returning to the bantamweight division, John Lineker is 5-1, only losing to champion TJ Dillashaw. Only the top of the food chain have really given Lineker significant problems on the feet.

It's not hard to see the way this fight is "supposed" to go and the weight difference should only work as an advantage in the grappling department which is where this fight will likely take place.

This is set to be Vitor Belfort's swan song. Belfort, 41, won his last fight as well when he beat Nate Marquardt via decision back in June.

Still, I believe Machida has more spring in his step than Belfort. Machida, 39, is coming off an impressive decision win over up-and-coming prospect Eryk Anders, giving him his first loss. Give us your UFC 224 picks in the comments section below.

That'll do it for the UFC 224 predictions.
