The woman tasked with the job of ending her reign at the summit of the UFC's women's bantamweight division was Ultimate Fighter season 18 star Raquel Pennington, who went into her maiden UFC title fight on the back of a huge victory over Miesha Tate.
A low kick severely hampered Pennington's movement early on in the fight, and Nunes got the better of almost every exchange as the bout wore on.
After the bout, an emotional Nunes admitted that the challenge of fighting Pennington, a longtime friend, was an extremely hard one.
The second round saw more of the same but success came for Pennington in the form of a takedown and higher output, though not able to capitalise on it.

With the fifth-round stoppage, the Brazilian did manage to break a record as she now has seven finishes in the UFC - the most by a female fighter in the organisation's history by stopping the likes of Ronda Rousey and Valentina Shevchenko. Pennington's movement was visibly compromised and Nunes began landing punches and dropped her a second time with a leg kick. Unfortunately, a severe leg injury slowed Pennington's pace and put her out of action for over a year and a half. At least one of those got through clean as Pennington's nose was twisted sideways as a result of the knee strikes as she was definitely going into survival mode.
After sending Pennington out for the fifth round, she bled horrifically as Nunes rained down with some massive hits - who later admitted she didn't enjoy fighting a friend - until the referee finally waved the fight off.
"I would have done the same thing if I were in her corner's shoes". Rocky secured a takedown, but otherwise it was more of Nunes picking the challenger apart with leg kicks and combinations.
Once the fight was over, Nunes called Pennington and her fiancée Tecia Torres to join her in the Octagon where she addressed how hard this fight was for her. "This is the first time ever", she said. Pennington, as you surely know, was bloodied further in round five and the fight was stopped. "I already asked Nina to text her - if she needs anything I'm here".
