UFC 215: Nobody Wins in Nunes vs. Shevchenko

UFC 215 Fight results live updates round-by-round scoring

When the fight with Shevchenko ended, Nunes walked over to the broadcast position and shouted through the fence at the team of Jon Anik, Daniel Cormier and Joe Rogan, who called the action from Edmonton, something to the effect of "what are they going to say about me now?" referencing the critics and pundits who predicted she would fade down the stretch and lose her title.

And when UFC commentator Joe Rogan mentioned the possibility of a third fight between the pair, Shevchenko was adamant. LIVE hotel in Los Angeles, Calif., on Thursday, June 29, 2017.

As a result, the night's co-main event between women's bantamweight titleholder Amanda Nunes and No. 1-challenger Valentina Shevchenko has been elevated to the headlining bout.

The event was slated to be headlined by flyweight kingpin Demetrious Johnson, who looked to set the record for most consecutive title defenses when he faced New Mexico's Ray Borg. The rematch was originally scheduled for UFC 213 on July 8, but was postponed when Nunes withdrew from the bout due to sinusitis. Dos Anjos is fighting in his second bout at welterweight, his first being a unanimous decision over Tarec Saffiedine. "I know in the last round I was going to go for the takedown and I did". Once, I kicked him and the referee stepped in front of me but he never waived off the fight so it was a little unusual but it was a fun scrap. "I finished the fight strong and kept my belt".

In the UFC 215 post-fight presser, Shevchenko said she wholeheartedly felt that she won the fight and that she should have a third match against Nunes. Or would Shevchenko hang in there as she did in March 2016, and win the fight as Nunes faded in the championship rounds? I was looking to stand and trade punches with him but when I felt that I could control his weight, I chose to go with that. "I think I'm going to take some time off because this is my breathing, and I have to take care of it". However, that proof means little when, by nature of two important people scoring the fight for Nunes, Nunes hold the title - which leads to more money and more moneymaking opportunities - and Shevchenko does not.




"I decided with my coach at the end of the round, let's take her down". "I don't hate her". Following the win, Johnson used his platform to discuss continuing his work towards earning more compensation for fighters. "It will be the same fight, the same opponent, and it will be the same preparation".

Nunes went on to reveal that travelling at altitude exacerbates her condition and it's left her in no doubt that she now needs an operation to fix the problem. Compare that to 91.5% when she fought Rousey, 85.7% against Tate, and 65.4% when she fought Shevchenko the first time.

"I wanted to shut this girl up".

Gavin Tucker, who was considered one of the top Canadian prospects in the UFC, lost in one of the most lopsided decisions in UFC history against Rick Glenn.
