The time has come for this year’s International Fight Week in Las Vegas. UFC 213 is giving us two titles fights at 135 pounds with Amanda Nunes defending her title against Valentina Shevchenko and Cody Garbrandt settling the score against T.J. Dillashaw.
With Garbrandt having to undergo back surgery, the fight was scrapped, leaving a hole in the co-main event. Plus, Donald Cerrone and Robbie Lawler were expected to slug it out in the welterweight division, but a blood infection forced “Cowboy” out. Still, there are some big names fighting on Saturday night.
The replacement fight for Garbrandt-Dillashaw ended up being a blessing in disguise, bringing us a battle between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker for the interim middleweight crown while Michael Bisping recovers from surgery.
Amanda Nunes is quickly becoming one of the top power punchers in the women’s bantamweight division. She’s coming off back-to-back wins where she pummeled Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey, scoring a submission win over Tate for the title and a knockout of Rousey in the first round.
