    Rogers Place - Edmonton, Canada
    Saturday, September 9th




    Leading up to UFC 213 I was backing Amanda Nunes ... but after pulling out of the fight, a major red flag went up. Of course you want to enter fight day at 100% but it's pretty rare that happens after weeks of training and cutting weight. if you’re cleared by doctors and still won't fight obviously there is a problem other than health.

    At UFC 196, Nunes came out on top with a unanimous decision victory over Shevchenko in a 3 round fight, but the "Lioness" was in serious trouble in the 3rd with Shevchenko grinding / wearing her down. If that fight had seen a 4th round, IMO the end result would have been totally different.

    Shevchenko will have a ton of confidence heading into Saturday night knowing she can handle and survive Nunes' power while dragging the champ into deep water depleting her gas tank. This time around, the "Bullet" will have 2 more rounds to work with. A confident Valentina is a scary Valentina ... as long as the challenger can handle the early onslaught, there is a very good chance Shevchenko leaves Edmonton with the bantamweight strap over her shoulder.
