The title picture in two of the UFC’s most competitive divisions will become that much clearer after this weekend’s UFC 213 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In the main event women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes will look to build on her first round TKO of Ronda Rousey late last year with another emphatic performance against Valentina Shevchenko. The two first met just over a year ago, with Nunes claiming the unanumous decision victory but with the stakes so much higher this time around (and with Shevchenko earning wins over Holly Holm and Julianna Pena in the meantime) rivalries will be very much renewed when the title belt is on the line on Saturday evening.
In the middleweight division, Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker will duel for the chance to (probably) be Michael Bisping’s next 185-pound title defense when they battle for the interim gold in the evening’s co-main event. Both fighters have been in imperious form in recent times, but one of them will have their resumé considerably enhanced come Sunday morning.
