UFC 213 fight card: Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Shevchenko preview

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Bantamweight warriors Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko will rematch TONIGHT (July 8, 2017) at UFC 213 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the time since their first match, both women have improved and found real success. Nunes tore through two of the best women to ever compete, knocking around and stopping them in short fashion. Shevchenko’s wins were not quite as brutal, but she did take out a pair of top-ranked Bantamweights in impressive fashion. Those wins lead us to a clear match up the division’s top two fighters, and it should be a great scrap.

Let’s take a look at the keys to victory for each woman.

Amanda Nunes

Record: 14-4

Key Wins: Ronda Rousey (UFC 207), Miesha Tate (UFC 200), Valentina Shevchenko (UFC 196), Sara McMann (UFC Fight Night 73)

Key Losses: Cat Zingano (UFC 178), Sarah D’Alelio (Invicta FC 4), Alexis Davis (Strikeforce: Barnett vs Kharitonov)

Keys to Victory: Nunes is one of the biggest women in her division, and she ranks highly in athleticism. The Brazilian comes from a grappling background and is quite effective in that area, but lately she’s been relying more on her basic-but-effective kickboxing.

In this bout, a mix of both will be necessary to win.
