UFC 213 fight card: Full fight list for Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2

Robert Whittaker

Robert Whittaker

Romero finds himself interrogated by heavyweight Fabricio Werdum. That fight will follow the main card opener between former lightweight champion Anthony "Showtime" Pettis and divisional veteran Jim Miller. "This time, I will have more time".

Romero (14-1) is on an eight-fight win streak, including six finishes. That alone would be a recipe for disaster, but I can't shake the feeling that Romero is poised to win this fight for the interim middleweight championship. "I really have to prove it to get that recognition". However, it's clear that Bisping and St-Pierre want to fight each other. Whittaker is a sharper and more disciplined striker with fast reactions and pinpoint countering.

It's easy to understand why the victor out of Romero and Whittaker will become a very interesting matchup for Bisping if they meet later this year. Shevchenko did her best work in rounds four and five.

Now if only she could get some respect.

I expect that to be the case again at T-Mobile Arena, with both 29-year-old participants deeper into their primes - and that should offer the potential for a technical classic. Will youth or wisdom be the deciding factor on this night, or will it simply be down to who lands first?

That starts with putting the questions about the first fight against Shevchenko behind her. Nunes believes a convincing victory will do that. That was a three-round fight. She now calls Peru home, but trains for her fights largely in Thailand and the U.S.

Ares Management LP (NYSE:ARES) Given News Impact Rating of 0.26
Navellier & Associates Inc acquired a new stake in Ares Management L.P. during the first quarter valued at approximately $299,000. Lastly, Royal Bank Of Canada assumed coverage on stocks of Ares Management in a study note published on early Thur, Jun 29th.

Because Dana didn't spend $100 million (or even $100,000) to market Nunes prior to the Ronda Rousey fight, he's banking on Nunes capturing the fanbase that was initially drawn to Rousey. She wants to be respected and feared - inside of the Octagon, not out of it. She hasn't been taken past the first round since, submitting Tate and knocking out Rousey in the opening rounds of each of her subsequent bouts. Her goal remains to retire undefeated as a two-division champion and may just get that chance down the road against Shevchenko at 125 pounds. Whatever lessons were learned in that first tilt need to be brought to the forefront of their minds. He likes to fight slow and sluggish, but can turn up to 10 in an instant. But her vastly underrated grappling is what secured Shevchenko this title shot. Number-one contender Valentina Shevchenko will look to avenge her only loss inside the octogan and get the belt strapped around her waiste. Shevchenko will cause Nunes problems but such is the confidence of the Brazilian at the moment, it seems Nunes is ready to cement a legacy in the Bantamweight division. Shevchenko is a technician with clinical precision and a wealth of combat sport experience.

"From the beginning, from childhood, to go to the fight and just be there for participation was never my goal", she said.

This weekend promises to have some exciting fights between the two fight cards. They always combine for an exciting fight, so that should be a good one. Shevchenko is arguably Nunes' last great obstacle in the division, and therefor a win would open a new world of possibilities for the champion. Until you remember that the prior two fights were rather lackluster.
