UFC 297 video: Raquel Pennington vs. Mayra Bueno Silva final faceoff for vacant title fight

TORONTO – There’s only one more step to crown a new women’s bantamweight champion following the final faceoff between UFC 297 co-headliners Raquel Pennington and Mayra Bueno Silva.

Pennington (15-8 MMA, 12-5 UFC) and Bueno Silva (10-2-1 MMA, 5-2-1 UFC) will fight for the vacant belt left behind in the wake of Amanda Nunes’ retirement this past June when they meet in Saturday’s co-main event at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto (pay-per-view, ESPN, ESPN+).

Both women made weight Friday at the official weigh-ins, then hours later squared up at the ceremonial weigh-ins in a respectful manner.

Watch the video above to see the final Pennington vs. Bueno Silva faceoff ahead of UFC 297.
