This Saturday at UFC 215, an eagerly anticipated 135-pound contest will go down when Amanda Nunes attempts to defend her bantamweight title against Valentina Shevchenko.
Nunes (14-4-0) previously fought Shevchenko (14-2) back in March 2016, winning by way of a unanimous decision. However, although Nunes won the first two rounds, Shevchenko completely turned things around and dominated the third round. This has led many to believe that Shevchenko will emerge victorious in a five-round fight, due to Nunes’ cardio issues.
Headlining the Fox Sports 1 prelims portion of the card will be a potential title eliminator when Sara McMann (11-3-0) takes on undefeated Ketlen Vieira (8-0-0). Also featured on the FS1 card is another 135-pound fight when Ashlee (5-2-0) Evans-Smith takes on Sarah Moras (4-2-0).
UFC 215 takes place this Saturday from the Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The main card will be aired live live on pay-per-view from 10m ET / 7pm PT.
