Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes will rematch top women’s 135-pound contender Valentina Shevchenko at tonight’s (Sat., July 8, 2017) UFC 213 pay-per-view (PPV) event inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Nunes (14-4) and Shevchenko (14-2) first went to war at UFC 196 in March 2016. The Brazilian won a close three-round unanimous decision, then went on to capture the crown from Miesha Tate at UFC 200 before defending against Ronda Rousey at UFC 207. “Bullet,” meanwhile, rebounded from her “Lioness” loss to defeat ex-champion Holly Holm and top contender Julianna Pena.
