UFC 224 Start time Preview at Brazil

Amanda Nunes

The day has arrived for UFC 224.

UFC 224 takes place this Saturday, April 12 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

This is the co-main event with "Jacare" Souza, also from Brazil, ranked No. 2 in the middleweight division and Gastelum, an American, at No. 5. Who will move closer to the middleweight title? While Nunes didn't finish Shevchenko, she did notch her second title defense. Nunes is long and the more effective kickboxer, so she'll take distance if Pennington gives it to her.

Nunes showed a lot of improvement in her last fight against Shevchenko. Even though Jacare Souza comes into this bout at 38 years old, it feels different. That said, Jacare can be unsafe on his feet as well. Last month's UFC 223 press event in Brooklyn was terrorized by former champion Conor McGregor which resulted to the Irishman's arrest. I've got Nunes via stoppage. Gastelum is a fantastic wrestler but will lose in a grappling match with Souza. Here's some fights that we think could pay off for you. Both men are competent strikers with the power to knock out anyone while it will be interesting to see Souza's phenomenal Brazilian jiu-jitsu collides with Gastelum's wrestling. Though Souza has the home crowd edge, I think Gastelum scores the upset. "If I don't make a statement, I don't think I'll be able to contend for the title next". Later that morning, all fighters make weight except for Mackenzie Dern. She missed weight again before her bout with Amanda Cooper.

The twilight of their careers have followed nearly identical paths, both ending three-fight losing streaks with decision victories in their last outings.

Oil jumps 3 percent after USA quits Iran deal, United States stock drawdown
They expect West Texas Intermediate, the most commonly cited USA contract, to trade $6 below the price of Brent in 2019. Weekly US crude oil production hit another record last week, climbing to 10.7 million barrels per day (bpd).

And since her loss to Holm at UFC 184, Pennington has gone on to claim four victories in the octagon, submitting Andrade in a rematch, then claiming decision victories over former title challenger, Bethe Correia, veteran Elizabeth Phillips, and, most recently, former world champion, Miesha Tate. She has won four consecutive bouts, with a submission victory over Jessica Andrade starting that run back at UFC 191. After going 9-1 in his last 10 outings, he certainly deserves an opponent the caliber of John Lineker. Only the top of the food chain have really given Lineker significant problems on the feet.

Nunes is rightly considered a huge favourite in this fight, but this is mixed martial arts... literally anything can happen!

This is set to be Vitor Belfort's swan song. Belfort isn't almost what he used to be, but neither is Machida. Machida, 39, is coming off an impressive decision win over up-and-coming prospect Eryk Anders, giving him his first loss.

Still, I believe Machida has more spring in his step than Belfort. "I want to be done". She is a very capable fighter but I don't like her chances of beating Amanda Nunes in Brazil.

That'll do it for the UFC 224 predictions.
