UFC 213 video preview: Nunes vs Shevchenko 2, Romero vs Whittaker - ‘Inside the Octagon’

Two championship titles will be up for grabs in the UFC 213 pay-per-view (PPV) extravaganza this Saturday night (July 8, 2017), in both the women’s bantamweight and men’s middleweight divisions in the main and co-main events from inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Headlining the “Sin City” fight card will be the rematch between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko, who battled to a close decision at UFC 196 in early 2016. What’s changed between then and now? “Lioness” is now the reigning 135-pound titleholder.

Speaking of titles...

With Michael Bisping injured — and running out the clock — Yoel Romero will put his top contender status on the line against surging middleweight power puncher Robert Whittaker, with the winner claiming the division’s interim strap.

Check out their extensive fight breakdowns above and below.
