Amanda Nunes didn’t compete since September 2017, when she defeated Valentina “The Bullet” Shevchenko at UFC 215. “The Lioness” is known for knocking out the former champ, Ronda Rousey, after only 48 seconds in the first round.

She fought her way through 135-pound division in an impressive way by winning four in a row. She hasn’t been defeated since a decision loss to one more amazing fighter and a former champ, Holly Holm.

UFC president Dana White considered the possibility of setting the fight between Cris Cyborg and Raquel Pennington. However, UFC decided for Amanda Nunes vs Raquel Pennington after Cris Cyborg said she needs some break after three fights in only seven months.

Cris Cyborg will surely be a very active spectator at UFC 224, cause she hopes to face Amanda Nunes soon. One more interesting fight of UFC 224 will be Lyoto Machida vs Vitor Belfort.
