The next UFC pay-per-view is UFC 224, and since it comes to us from Brazil, it’s got a Brazilian champ in the main event.
No, not that popular one named Cris Cyborg. The other one. The one fans don’t seem to have taken to much. Amanda Nunes.
Poor Nunes has done everything right. When she wins, she does so brutally and violently, and she ascended to the throne by taking out the popular Miesha Tate. Of course, the icing on the cake was when she utterly wrecked former champ Ronda Rousey, thereby sending Rousey into retirement and pro wrestling.
But when it comes to resonating with fans, Nunes just hasn’t caught fire. Which sucks, because she deserves the love and adulation.
When UFC 224 rolls around, Nunes will be taking on pal Raquel Pennington. Outside of Nunes’ friends and family, and Pennington’s friends and family, does anyone really care about this match-up?
Anyway, here’s a little hype vid the UFC has put together on Nunes’ behalf. Watch it – although if you aren’t already keen on seeing the Brazilian slugger in the cage, it’s unlikely a hype vid would set your loins alight.
