UFC caps off International Fight Week 2017 with a championship doubleheader on Saturday, July 8th in Las Vegas. Fresh from a dominant 2016 campaign that saw her win all three of her Octagon appearances, including capturing the bantamweight championship from Miesha Tate and finishing Ronda Rousey in under one minute, Brazil’s Amanda “The Lioness” Nunes puts her title on the line against surging contender and familiar foe Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko. After suffering her first UFC loss to Nunes more than a year ago, the muay thai machine has surged back into contention with back-to-back wins over Holly Holm and Julianna Peña, and this time she plans on leaving T-Mobile Arena with the win and the belt around her waist. In the second title bout, the interim middleweight championship is the prize as Cuban powerhouse Yoel “Soldier of God” Romero looks to keep his Octagon record perfect against Robert Whittaker, who has looked unstoppable since his 185-pound debut back in 2014. With four finishes in his last six outings, “The Reaper” is looking to become the first New Zealand-born athlete to hold UFC gold, but with 11 of his 13 wins coming by knockout, Romero will be more than eager to stand and trade shots with his young opponent. Plus, welterweight showstoppers finally meet as former champion “Ruthless” Robbie Lawler faces veteran warrior Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone, and heavyweight legends go head-to-head for the third time as Fabricio “Vai Cavalo” Werdum and Alistair Overeem collide in the Octagon.
Current women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes defends against Valentina Shevchenko, plus Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker square off for the interim middleweight title in the Co Main Event. UFC 213: Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2 – Saturday, July 8th, live on pay-per-view from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
