Things Got a Little Awkward During the UFC 224 Face-Offs

Things Got a Little Awkward During the UFC 224 Face-Offs

UFC 224 will be the UFC's first return to Brazil since UFC Fight Night 125 this past February when the UFC dropped down in Belem for Lyoto Machida vs Eryk Anders in the main event.

It's been well documented that Hall had a seizure as a result of a bad weight cut that ultimately led to him being hospitalized.

Last spring, following his bout with Kelvin Gastelum, Belfort said he was going to fight one more time and that would be that.

Lineker and Kelleher are rarely in boring fights when they're facing other people and now they're sharing the cage together, jockeying for position in the deeper-than-you-realize bantamweight ranks. So I think I'm leaving one of the biggest legacies in the sport, for sure, worldwide.

"But this is my last fight, for sure, and I'm very content with what I accomplished in this sport", he added.

Jessica Mauboy has made it through to Eurovision final
Australia now competes annually but with no special favours, having to win its way through by competing in the semi-finals. The song also references "Wonder Woman", who was recently brought to the big screen by Israeli actress Gal Gadot.


"I'm not retiring because when you retire, you're still getting paid". And I'm not retiring because I'm not getting paid after I finish (fighting), so I'm looking for jobs. "But we have so much left to do".

Ahead of Saturday's event in Rio de Janeiro, the UFC 224 main card fighters squared off for cameras at Thursday's media day in Brazil.

In the headliner, women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes (15-4 MMA, 8-1 UFC) meets challenger, former training partner and friend Raquel Pennington (9-5 MMA, 6-2 UFC).

UFC 113, which took place at Bell Centre in Montreal, was headlined by the light-heavyweight title rematch between Lyoto Machida and Shogun Rua, featured a title eliminator bout between Josh Koscheck and Paul Daley in the co-main and included the second UFC appearance of Internet sensation Kimbo Slice.
