Fighters Overwhelming Blast Raquel Pennington’s Corner for Not Stopping the Fight

UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes successfully defended her belt at UFC 224, putting a beating on her friend and challenger Raquel Pennington. But did it have to be as bad as it was?

Pennington was losing badly after four rounds. In between the fourth and fifth rounds, Pennington was caught on mic in her corner telling her team, “I’m done. I want to be done.”

But her cornermen responded, “No, no, no, no, no,” and sent her back out for the fifth round.

Nunes opened Pennington’s nose like a faucet and closed out the fight midway through the final round, unloading until the referee stepped in to stop the fight.

Should Pennington’s corner have thrown in the towel? Should they have respected what she said and stopped the fight? Or did they do the right thing and push her to go back out for the final round?
