UFC 213 Statistical Matchup Analysis: Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2

The centerpiece of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s International Fight Week is anchored by a rematch between two of the best women’s bantamweights on the planet. Defending champion Amanda Nunes has looked like she is in a league of her own since capturing the title against Miesha Tate in the first round at UFC 200. She needed even less time to defend the belt against Ronda Rousey at UFC 207 in December, punching out the former champion within the first minute of the fight. Following a breakout 2016 campaign, which also included a unanimous decision victory over Valentina Shevchenko prior to her winning the title, this will be the first fight of the year for the “Lioness,” who is currently riding a five-fight win streak. On the other side of the cage will be Shevchenko. The former muay Thai champion has continued to get more comfortable in the Octagon throughout her four fights in the UFC. “Bullet” debuted in the promotion in 2015 with a short-notice split decision win against Sarah Kaufman and then proceeded to lose a unanimous decision to Nunes.

The Bottom Line: The Best Path Forward

Editor’s note: The views and opinions expressed below are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the views of Sherdog.com, its affiliates and sponsors or its parent company, Evolve Media. * * * For much of the year, a Michael Bisping - Georges St. Pierre UFC middleweight title fight has been floated as the next bout for each man. The fight didn’t really make sense for anyone besides Bisping -- he would get the biggest money fight of his career -- yet still it hung over and paralyzed two divisions. UFC President Dana White this week announced his intention to have St. Pierre’s return fight instead be against the winner of Tyron Woodley - Demian Maia for the UFC welterweight crown that GSP never lost. It’s still not a given that will happen as St. Pierre has expressed his continuing preference for Bisping, but if the shift takes place, it will be a tremendous development and is clearly the best option for the fans and the sport. It’s been a rough year for the Ultimate Fighting Championship , with diminishing fan interest and a lot of hostility directed at the promotion from fighters and fans.

Fact Check: ‘The Ultimate Fighter 25’ Finale

She is going to continue acting? Thats another thing she is bad at, along with fighting which she’s pretty bad at aswell. Just a bully because once someone stands up to her she goes to pieces but she came along at the right time and made plenty of money and still isn’t happy with her lot, so such an ungrateful cow who lacks any humility and wonders why people dislike her. Im hoping that until her personality changes this will be one of the last times i hear about her, good riddance.

Can McGregor beat Mayweather? Doubtful, but MMA fighters with boxing experience have ideas

“He’s going to have to work really hard just to get a clean look at him, but when he thinks he has an opportunity to hit him, then Floyd will tie him up,” Davis said. “I think he’s going to get desperate, he’s going to start lunging, because he’ll realize he can’t lay a glove on him. That’s when I think he’ll start getting hit with the harder shots, and I think he’ll probably get stopped within six rounds. If McGregor can make it more than six rounds, that looks bad for boxing.”

Sherdog’s Official Mixed Martial Arts Rankings - Take a Good Last Look

Several major fights have been officially announced, and it is now the Ultimate Fighting Championship 's International Fight Week, which means there is an awful lot about to go down in the days ahead. We thought you might want to take a good, long look at these lists before an imminent and inevitable shake-up. The drama surrounding Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino finally seems over, as she will improbably meet Invicta Fighting Championships bantamweight titlist Tonya Evinger for the vacant UFC women's featherweight title at UFC 214 . Meanwhile, that same UFC 214 card has picked up a massive addition, with the rescheduled Donald Cerrone - Robbie Lawler battle added to its roster; and the UFC 215 bill on Sept. 9 has been bolstered by the booking of Junior dos Santos - Francis Ngannou . On top of these announcements, International Fight Week has no less than 10 ranked fighters in action, with most of them going head-to-head. We do have at least one real change. In our last update, following her exoneration by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, we placed Cortney Casey back in her rightful spot as our ninth-ranked strawweight.

Episode No. 12 recap: 'The Ultimate Fighter 25: Redemption'

Round 2 – Krause opens with a body kick, but Taylor immediately goes for the takedown. After a brief struggle Taylor gets on top and moves Krause’s body toward the fence where he can work his strikes. Taylor advances to half guard and delivers a steady stream of offense, which prevents a stand-up and Krause is doing little to get off his back. There are several scramble, but each time Taylor finds a way to end up with top control. Krause is cut open on his forehead from Taylor’s strikes. Taylor puts in solid work for the remainder of the round to close out one of the most lopsided rounds of the season.

UFC 213 Competitor Alistair Overeem Uninjured After Fire at Albuquerque Hotel

Alistair Overeem had a slightly harrowing experience less than a week from his fight at UFC 213 . The Dutch heavyweight posted on his Twitter account on Monday evening that he survived a “huge explosion” next to his hotel room at the Residence Inn in northeast Albuquerque, N.M. According to a report in the Albuquerque Journal , firefighters found smoke and flames coming from a storage area at the hotel. The fire was contained without any injuries to firefighters or civilians. The cause is currently unknown. “I heard a big boom,” Overeem told the Journal. “I thought it was nothing going on, but one of my teammates came and got me ‘we need to get out of here now.’ “There was a huge black cloud,” Overeem said of the building next door. “It was a little hectic, but I think the situation is under control now.” Overeem, who holds his training camps at Jackson-Wink MMA, will face Fabricio Werdum in a featured heavyweight bout at UFC 213 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Saturday.
