Amanda Nunes Hospitalized, UFC 213 Main Event In Trouble

UFC 213 has been hit with a huge blow just hours before the gates open at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas as news emerges that Amanda Nunes has had to pull out of her latest bantamweight title defense against Valentina Shevchenko. The UFC 213 fight against Shevchenko was supposed to be a rematch, as Nunes won a fight against her at UFC 196 by unanimous decision.

If you can not catch UFC 213 live, be sure to bookmark our new spoiler-free replay page, where you will be able to watch the Nunes v Shevchenko fight in full no later than Sunday lunchtime, with the whole card available on Monday morning.

UFC 213 officially marks the beginning of a new era in the promotion's women's bantamweight division, one that notably lacks the star power that once brought it to the precipice of mainstream recognition in the earlier half of the decade.

"I'm mentally ready for everything after that and 100 percent ready for this next one", Nunes said.

With the withdrawal, the scheduled fight between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittacker has now become the main event and UFC 213 will proceed with 11 fights. He is welcoming Gaethje to the UFC in his first fight in the organization.

Specifically, Ansaroff will carry the baby for the couple, who have been together since 2012; she was supposed to have started the process this year, but a January win delayed their plans. She out-pointed former champion Holly Holm in a five round decision win.

The last time these two girls fought was in a three round contest.

Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes will put her belt on the line verses a familar foe.

Again, we can likely assume that a few more people are aware of Nunes's existence following her win over Rousey. I'm very focused on this fight.

"I'm not handsome, and I've accepted that", Nunes said. It's the UFC's biggest week on the calendar. "I will be very strong".

Shevchenko on what holes she sees in Nunes' game: "It's not about her". It's a dream come true, and I have to make sure to keep it because I want to make history and maybe one day break records. Consistently roaming the world as one of the most feared women on the planet, Nunes finally reached the heights she had long pursued.

"I will walk away with the belt", she said. With Romero being on the longest current win streak in the division and Whittaker looking like a different athlete all together since moving up a division, either of these will be worthy of a title shot.

Fox Sports 1 will have live coverage of the preliminary fight at 8 p.m. ET while pay-per-view for the main card will broadcast on UFC's official website.
