UFC 215: Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2 Results

Demetrious Johnson has dominated the flyweight division since its inception in 2012
The card was supposed to feature Demetrious Johnson defending his flyweight title against Ray Borg, but Borg was forced out of the fight after coming down with an illness. That bout was originally on the preliminary card, but was moved up when the Johnson vs. Borg fight was scrapped.
Prior to defeating Miesha Tate for the title in 2016, Nunes claimed a decision over Shevchenko. "I know the crowd wants to see a knockout, but this was not for the crowd".
"The (booing) is normal". Shevchenko, 29, who outlanded Nunes 104 to 85 in total strikes, appeared incredulous while shaking her head after the scores were read.
The champion also appeared to rule out the possibility that she'll fight again this year. She is the reigning, defending, undisputed women's bantamweight champion and deserves to be push as the world-class competitor she is from here on out. "The specialist did a really good job taking care of this, and right now I have all the medication that I need and I'm 100 percent ready for this fight".
"I won three rounds". Her nose is red from my punches.

Kai Kara France is hoping for a call up to the UFC in Sydney in November
The Bahia native looked charged up entering the fourth round for the first time in her career, and she came out fast to start the frame, continuing to work behind kicks to the leg and quick punches upstairs. From there, it was clear that both wanted to finish strong, with Shevchenko being aggressive in her attempt to take the title and Nunes picking her shots and even trying for a takedown in order to keep the belt. "We'd love to for a variety of reasons".
Kajan Johnson kicks Adriano Martins of Brazil during their mixed martial arts bout at UFC 215 in Edmonton on Saturday.
"There were some (a few hundred) refunds", said Shaw. Look at the storm that we just came out: UFC 214 was massive, and McGregor/Mayweather was seismic.
The Brazilian made short work of Neil Magny as he wrapped up an arm-triangle choke in the first frame to get his first submission win since 2012. She may find a more immediate title shot in the new flyweight division, a weight class that will likely suit her even better than bantamweight. Latifi managed to secure one last take down, where he secured the top position, holding onto the dominant position until the bell to receive the decision victory. Melendez has a wide stance and Barboza capitalized on it, as did Stephens, who dropped Melendez multiple times in the fight with consistent and thudding leg kicks.
After the decision was announced, a visibly disappointed Shevchenko said she felt she'd done enough to earn the decision. "I decided at the end of the [fifth] round, 'Let's take her down, ' because I know she is going to get exhausted". "It was super emotional walking out". "But I went to get my takedowns". Clarke's face was badly battered and the Edmonton fighter announced his retirement from professional MMA after the loss, which was his third in a row. "Tonight, you saw my final fight".
