"If I truly wanted out of there, I could have turned around [to the ref] and waved out of the fight", Pennington says.

If they were in the same position today, Kutz said he would tell Pennington the same thing. And granted, we already discussed that I knew it hurt, but the nausea and this and that, I wasn't really aware of at that moment.

"I'm actually proud of my coaches", Pennington said on The MMA Hour. Something extraordinary. And if I didn't think that Raquel could do something extraordinary, then hey, we would've went the other way with it. "At the end of the day, my coaches know me best", she added as transcribed via MMA Fighting.

Kutz also said that he was unaware of the extent of the leg injury Pennington sustained early in the bout, via Nunes' leg kicks. In response, Kutz repeatedly said no and added, "Don't go out like this".

In response, she was told: "No, no, no. Let's power through this".

"If she didn't have the right conditioning to fight then the coach should have thrown in the towel for sure".

At a postfight news conference, Nunes suggested Pennington's corner had "failed" her by sending her out for the final round.

Pennington also revealed on the MMA Hour that her coaches are "struggling" to handle the fallout from UFC 224's controversy. To the outrage of many, Pennington's corner told her to get back out there and fight anyway.

Well, since then, Pennington has defended her team's decision, and she reported she's glad Kutz didn't let her quit. Looks like her Spartan side won this time. The referee stopped the fight, and Raquel Pennington ended up with a busted nose and leg, and two swollen black eyes.

"She stepped up multiple times, and we were just looking for a second flurry of things to come, he said".

Still, as the fight progressed, Kutz realized the possible outcomes increasingly favored Nunes and that Pennington would need to pull off something incredible to turn the tide.

"I wouldn't have given her a pep-talk to get her to go into the fifth round if I didn't think she had an extraordinary effort inside of her". It's sad. Everyone must be saying a lot of bad things about him on social media, but I really think she needs to surround herself with people who want the best for her so she can really evolve for her next fights. I was going through a moment where I was obviously frustrated because of the facts with my legs. And I know that had she stopped [the fight] right then and there, and I've talked to her about this afterward - like, 'Hey, in 10 years when you look back at this, I think you'd be kicking yourself in the trousers had you not gone out there'. "I feel like I match-up so well with the current [UFC] champ Amanda Nunes and so I just needed to prove to myself, prove to everyone, that my performances speak for themselves and I wanted the finish".

"And now, she doesn't have to do that in 10 years". At least now you know why her nickname is Rocky!

The biggest question for the Brazilian standout at the moment is who does she fight next? "And that's when a coach steps in and they push their athlete". "Cupcake" gave her take in an interview with SiriusXM Rush.
