Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is expected to send Amanda Nunes into her second title defense against top women’s bantamweight contender Valentina Shevchenko at the upcoming UFC 213 pay-per-view (PPV) event, set for July 8, 2017 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
That’s according to a report from MMA Fighting.
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 (recap), 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.
Glad to see these two are finally on the same page.
UFC 213 is shaping up quite nicely, thanks to the addition of Cody Garbrandt vs. TJ Dillashaw for the 135-pound strap, as well as Robbie Lawler vs. Donald Cerrone for welterweight bragging rights.
