UFC 215 results: Amanda Nunes retains bantamweight title with split decision win

EDMONTON, Alberta - Amanda Nunes is still the UFC's female bantamweight champion - by the very skin of her teeth. Both of these ladies ruled their division, and now it's clear that Nunes is absolutely queen, even if Nunes' split-decision win wasn't that impressive. But as the round progressed, it was the champion who began to take an edge as she stayed busy while keeping Shevchenko on the end of her strikes. Nunes also defended her title in a 48-second KO win over Ronda Rousey back on December 30. This highlight sums it up (nothing much was going on).

"I want this fight and I totally disagree why this decision goes to the other side". Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET. With five rounds scheduled, this will be a test of Nunes' cardio development. Shevchenko is becoming more active than she was in the first.

Round 3. Shevchenko lands a nice right hand early. But she spent most of the fight moving backward, had her back taken, and gave up a takedown and ground control in the pivotal fifth frame. Be that as it may, the Tiger Muay Thai fighter will do everything in her power to get back in there with Nunes to claim what she feels is truly hers. "Then I got the win so I'm over the top". Dos Anjos is fighting in his second bout at welterweight, his first being a unanimous decision over Tarec Saffiedine.

'Man, I'm coming for that belt.

"Like I said my whole [pre-fight] interview, I know everything Valentina is going to bring tonight", Nunes said.

Cejudo turned over a two-fight skid following losses to Demetrious Johnson and Joseph Benavidez ahead of his showdown with the Brazilian. Cejudo, a former Olympic gold medalist in wrestling, put his boxing skills on display in picking Reis apart.

Ilir Latifi outwrestled blue chip prospect Australian prospect Tyson Pedro in a light-heavyweight contest.

The preliminary card is headlined by a bout between Sara McMann, a former title challenger, and Ketlen Vieira, while the main card will open with a bout between Gilbert Melendez and Jeremy Stephens.

Stephens, who postponed his wedding after being offered the fight with Melendez, left the ex-Strikeforce champion bruised and battered after a series of leg kicks connected.
