UFC Notebook: Nunes squeaks out win over Shevchenko

MMA DFS Playbook: UFC 215

In the end, Nunes retained her UFC women's bantamweight championship, after she and Shevchenko went toe-to-toe in each and every round. 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. "I finished the fight strong and kept my belt". I know at the end of the round she was the one getting exhausted, not me. She does own a win over Shevchenko, a unanimous decision win, but both have looked better in recent bouts.

Whatever the reason for the withdrawal, she was ready at UFC 215. Melendez continued to get up each time, at one point even receiving a nod of respect from Stephens, but he ultimately lost by unanimous decision, 30-26, 30-26, 30-25. Shevchenko also revealed that she dislocated her finger in the first round of the fight, but said it didn't really matter throughout the course of the fight. The first Indo-Canadian fighter in UFC history said after the fight that India's 1 billion population is now a part of the UFC and he's coming for the top fighters in the heavyweight division.

Miocic said that he would be open to a fight with Francis Ngannou and is okay with any scenario that the UFC puts in front of him, but that a few things need to happen before his next fight. Look at the storm that we just came out: UFC 214 was massive, and McGregor/Mayweather was seismic. The Brazilian produced a near-flawless display to submit top 10-ranked Neil Magny with a first-round arm-triangle choke.

"Thank you Canada", Dos Anjos told a deafening crowd that included Connor McDavid Milan Lucic and a handful of other Edmonton Oilers.

Stop ethnic cleansing of Rohingya Muslims
On Thursday, former South African archbishop Desmond Tutu urged Ms Suu Kyi to intervene to stop the persecution of the Rohingya. Rohingya fleeing to Bangladesh have reported being ordered to leave Myanmar under the threat of death.

If you missed out on Saturday night's action, we have you covered. Even when I was on the ground [in Round 5], I hit really hard from the ground position.

Stephens cut the legs out from Melendez, literally, dropping him half a dozen times with leg kicks and dominated him in the standup as well. "I'm here for a reason", she said.

Kajan Johnson returned from a two-year hiatus to collect his third straight UFC victory overall, catching Adriano Martins with a sharp right hand a minute into the third round to get the finish, while Kelowna's Sarah Moras come back from a similar layoff to pick up a first-round submission win over Ashlee Evans-Smith that left her fighting back tears in the Octagon after the fight. "It was super emotional walking out". "I know in the last round I was going to go for the takedown and I did". 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. The 32-year-old dos Anjos has now won back-to-back fights since making the move to welterweight, having earned a decision in June vs. Tarec Saffiedine.
