Raquel Pennington Wiki Update Wiki

Raquel Pennington was a competitor on TUF 18. She won her fight to get into the house against Tonya Evinger via 2nd round guillotine choke. In episode 6 of TUF Raquel faced Jessamyn Duke. The fight was a close slug fest with Duke winning with her range in the first round, and Pennington figuring out her range to win the second and third rounds and take the match. On the final episode of TUF 18 Raquel faced Jessica Rakoczy to see who makes it to the finals. The first round was close on the feet due to both being tentative because of injuries. Raquel got a take down late in the 1st to score points. The second round Jessica fought with more urgency and scored lots of points with jabs and combos. The third round looked a lot like the second with Jessica outclassing Raquel on the feet but she gave up a late take down this time. The fight was ruled a UD victory for Jessica.


Pennington would still fight on the Ultimate Fighter finale and would pick up her first UFC win over veteran Roaxanne Modafferi. She fought Jessica Andrade at UFC 171, but would come up short in a split decision loss.
