UFC 215: Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2 Gate and Attendance from Edmonton

MMA DFS Playbook: UFC 215

Nunes (15-4) defended her 135-pound title for the second time, narrowly defeating Valentina Shevchenko (14-3) via split decision Saturday in the main event at UFC 215 inside Rogers Place.

"I've got great leg kicks", said Stephens, who won a lopsided unanimous decision.

Ilir Latifi proved too much for the inexperienced Tyson Pedro, capturing a unanimous decision victory over the previously undefeated light heavyweight.

After dropping out of their UFC 213 fight the day of, Valentina Shevchenko and Amanda Nunes became upped the bitterness levels of their feud.

Shevchenko did not rule out the possibility of appealing the fight result. Although the challenger eventually worked her way to the feet, Nunes was then able to score the takedown and finish out the round on top. However, that proof means little when, by nature of two important people scoring the fight for Nunes, Nunes hold the title - which leads to more money and more moneymaking opportunities - and Shevchenko does not. With under two minutes left, Shevchenko tried to turn a Nunes takedown into a throw, but Nunes ended up on her back on the mat.

The bout has particular significance to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson. Johnson deserves to get a shot at breaking the title defense record.

A disappointed Johnson told TSN that he appreciated finding out of the cancellation directly from the UFC rather than social media.

Rick Glenn def. Gavin TuckerRick Glenn earned his second consecutive victory at UFC 215 on Saturday.

Donald Cerrone, who he decimated in a lightweight title fight, lies ahead of him in the rankings while the victor of Stephen Thompson/Jorge Masvidal at UFC 217 is an enticing prospect also. Nunes said her partner, and UFC fighter, Nina Ansaroff's family is still in the area. However, Borg fell ill during fight week and the bout was canceled on the eve of weigh-ins.

The UFC loved its first visit to Edmonton. Bhullar used his wrestling and striking to successfully neutralize the larger Henrique. Moras submitted veteran Ashlee Evans-Smith via an armbar in the first round.

The wins were bittersweet as the two remaining Canadians on the card lost in devastating fashion.

Alex White def. Mitch Clarke Alex White kept connecting in the second round against a tough Mitch Clarke, who refused to fall. I said, 'Please reschedule this fight, and then let's make this happen, and (the UFC ) listened to me. With Rousey not officially retired yet and names such as Holly Holm and Cris "Cyborg" Justino just one weight class away, there will be plenty of opportunities for the champion to get big fights. The loss was the first of Tucker's career. The preliminary card beginning at 6:30 p.m. ET will be streamed via UFC Fight Pass, while the FS1 broadcast beginning at 8 p.m. can be had online via Fox Sports Go.

Does Miocic believe Velasquez deserves a title shot? The champion withdrew hours before the fight due to sinusitis.

"There were some (a few hundred) refunds", said Shaw. She followed that up by beating Miesha Tate for the UFC title at UFC 200 in July of past year.
