UFC 224 live stream: Watch Nunes vs Pennington online

The UFC returns to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on Saturday night for UFC 224. Brazilian fighter Amanda Nunes defends her women’s bantamweight title against Raquel Pennington in the main event. Nunes has won six straight fights and is 15-4 in her career with 10 knockout and three submission victories. Pennington is 9-5 in her career, winning four straight fights. However, she has not fought since defeating Miesha Tate at UFC 205 in November 2016.

Nunes is one of 13 Brazilian fighters on the 13 fight UFC 224 card. In the co-main event, Brazilian middleweight contender Ronaldo Souza clashes with Kelvin Gastelum. The winner of Saturday’s fight could be next in line for a middleweight title fight.

The Souza and Gastelum fight is one of five middleweight fights on the card. Former light heavyweight champions Vitor Belfort and Lyoto Machida kick off the main card on pay-per-view in a middleweight fight. Belfort announced that he will retire after the fight, regardless of the outcome. Despite both fighters spending over a decade in the UFC, they have never fought before in their careers.

The pay-per-view section of the card is rounded out with a fight between top women’s strawweight prospect MacKenzie Dern and Amanda Cooper. While sixth-ranked bantamweight John Lineker fights Brian Kelleher in the second fight of the card. The Brazilian born Lineker has won seven of his previous eight fights.

Jazz vs Thunder Live Stream Online

The Jazz vs. the Thunder. No first-round NBA Playoffs series may seem closer on paper, and our experts were split for a reason.

The Jazz and the Thunder are an interesting first-round matchup, in the sense that most series have a clear underdog. However, this series is anything but clear. Although the Thunder may have more “stars” on their roster, the Jazz are fielding a scorching-hot team with rookie Donovan Mitchell leading the way, winning 17 of their last 21 games to take the No. 5 seed.

With that being said, the Thunder took what everyone thought was a piecemeal roster and made it into the No. 4 seed. Sure the Westbrook-Anthony-George system took some lumps, but the Thunder persevered this season to make themselves look like a threatening — if flawed — presence. Russell Westbrook is still clearly the leader, but the Thunder still got over 20 points per game for Paul George and 15 for Carmelo Anthony.

Before Game 1, here is everything you need to know about what may be the most intense first-round series:
No. 4 Oklahoma City Thunder (48-34) vs. No. 5 Utah Jazz (48-34)

Thunder projected starting lineup: G Russell Westbrook; G Corey Brewer; F Carmelo Anthony; F Paul George; C Steven Adams

Jazz projected starting lineup: G Ricky Rubio; G Donovan Mitchell; F Joe Ingles; F Derrick Favors; C Rudy Gobert
Thunder win if …

The Thunder need two things: They need Russell Westbrook to dominate the game, and they need the Paul George that averaged north of 20 points in his last four games. This alone shows what makes the Thunder’s experiment this year so difficult, but it worked, at least as far as getting them home court. With that being said, Adams will need to body-up on Gobert and force him out of the paint. Westbrook being the team’s leading rebounder should give some Thunder fans pause.
Jazz win if …

Rudy Gobert makes the paint his on both ends of the floor, plain and simple. If he can punish Russell Westbrook for challenging him inside while also maintaining his 13.5 points per game to complement Donovan Mitchell, who we know will put up points, the Jazz will be a tough out. A little of that late-season momentum carrying over wouldn’t hurt either. Jae Crowder, who has vastly improved since his trade to Utah, could also be an impactful sixth man.
SportsLine projections

According to SportsLine data scientist Stephen Oh, the Thunder have a 5.3 percent chance to win the conference and a 2.2 percent chance to win it all. On the flip side, the Jazz have a 6.8 percent chance of winning the conference and 3 percent chance to win the Finals. SportsLine will have game-by-game gambling advice for every playoff series here.
