The main event for UFC 213 will be for the Women's Bantamweight Championship. Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Shevchenko. Both are coming off impressive victories. We last saw Amanda Nunes at UFC 207. That's when she destroyed former champion Ronda Rousey in the first round. Valentina Shevchenko's last bout was in January on UFC On Fox. She took out top contender Juliana Peña with an armbar in the second round.
The betting odds are about even for this fight. I'm going to take a stand and say we end the night with a new champion.
I think if Valentina can make it to the championship rounds. The fight will be in her favor. Skill wise they both match up pretty well. I can see the fight taking place everywhere. I think Amanda will fade if they make it to the championship rounds. Giving Valentina the slight edge she will need to tip things into her favor.
I normally don't like to make solid predictions until weigh ins, but it just felt right today.
Even though my mma talk is the least popular thing here. I appreciate you if made it this far. I'll recap after the card on Sunday!!
