Nunes keeps belt, defeats Shevchenko at UFC 215

UFC 215 - Nunes vs Shevchenko II: The two most well-rounded female MMA fighters on the planet do battle again MMA DFS Playbook: UFC 215

It was a tactical fight between the two top ranked fighters with Nunes serving as the aggressor for the bulk of five rounds with Shevchenko using her counter striking to chop away at the champion throughout 25-minutes. I know at the end of the round she was the one getting exhausted, not me. Nunes-who is known for her fast, furious starts-slow played the first frame, preferring to pick her battles.

"For two takedowns? All five rounds? Even when I was on the ground I was landing more punches and she was just holding the position, nothing more".

"I don't want to hear this girl or anything", Nunes said.

"Ray has been getting progressively more sick each day this week and still wanted to fight so badly that he put on a game face and went to all of his fight week obligations" Borg's nutritionist Dr. Michelle Ingels told MMA Fighting.

Defeat in the main event of UFC 215 was Shevchenko's second defeat to Nunes, the first being her UFC 196 loss to the Salvador native. Shevchenko, 29, who outlanded Nunes 104 to 85 in total strikes, appeared incredulous while shaking her head after the scores were read.

"I've got great leg kicks", said Stephens, who won a lopsided unanimous decision. Nunes continued to land push kicks, however, and placed the right hand several times during brief exchanges.

Should they lock horns with one another for a third time, Shevchenko is confident she will beat her nemesis.

Overall, however, it was a chess match of a fight.

The crowd booed the decision throughout the post-fight interviews. Nunes looks for a takedown at the midpoint of the round. Eight of those have come in the first round, including her most recent title defence nine months ago where she stopped Ronda Rousey in just 48 seconds.

Nunes acknowledged it was hard to concentrate all week, as south Florida braces for Hurricane Irma this weekend. I made sure I went to the gym and made sure I was sharp everywhere. "When I walk in the cage, my heart was there".

The third round was particularly closely contested with both fighters having their successes and, after another competitive round in the fourth, Nunes landed two eye-catching takedowns in the final round to sway the fight in the eyes of two of the three octagon-side judges.
