Go inside the lives and training camps of the two women competing in the UFC 224 main event on May 12. Women’s Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes defends her title against Raquel Pennington at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Nunes won the belt by submitting former champion Miesha Tate at UFC 200 in July 2016.  She annihilated fomer titleholder Ronda Rousey in her first title defense at UFC 207 and is coming off a decision win over Valentina Shevchenko in her last outing.

Pennington is riding a four-fight winning streak. She’s coming off a unanimous decision win over Tate in her last fight but hasn’t fought since UFC 205 in November 2016 due to injury.
