UFC 215 Results: Did Main Event Disappoint?

  • Amanda Nunes claimed a split decision victory over Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 215

Why she is still (champion), I don't understand'. She is the reigning, defending, undisputed women's bantamweight champion and deserves to be push as the world-class competitor she is from here on out.

"I want my title, and I'm ready to take one more fight against Amanda because I don't agree [with the decision], and I know it was my fight", Shevchenko said. "I don't hate her".

What will be interesting to see is how the UFC opts to promote Nunes going forward as she was in UFC President Dana White's doghouse after this fight was pushed back from UFC 213 when Nunes withdrew due to an illness the morning of the event. Now, she'll need to do the same regarding whether she deserved to win the fight.

Rick Glenn def. Gavin TuckerRick Glenn earned his second consecutive victory at UFC 215 on Saturday. This was my first five round fight. One of Nunes' best attributes is her destructive top game, but none of it was on display Saturday, likely because grappling would be more tiresome than the striking game she played. The first Indo-Canadian fighter in UFC history said after the fight that India's 1 billion population is now a part of the UFC and he's coming for the top fighters in the heavyweight division.

"There were some (a few hundred) refunds", said Shaw.

The Brazilian made short work of Neil Magny as he wrapped up an arm-triangle choke in the first frame to get his first submission win since 2012.

"Thank you Canada", Dos Anjos told a deafening crowd that included Connor McDavid Milan Lucic and a handful of other Edmonton Oilers. Even when I was on the ground [in Round 5], I hit really hard from the ground position. Melendez has a wide stance and Barboza capitalized on it, as did Stephens, who dropped Melendez multiple times in the fight with consistent and thudding leg kicks.

Latifi scored takedowns in each round, dropping Pedro on his head in the second, en route to a unanimous decision.

"The first kick, I hurt my foot", she said.

Moras improved to 5-3 with the biggest win of her career, capping a very emotional night. "I'm going to step in at 100 percent, and I will get the job done". "It was super emotional walking out".

"I think in the fourth, she got me a little bit", Nunes explained. Following the loss, Clarke announced his retirement from the UFC in his post-fight interview with Joe Rogan. When you resort to being a counter fighter, you put rounds in jeopardy of the judges.

Like a perpetually swinging axe, Stephens completely dominated Melendez to take a unanimous decision, but we've been here before and an impressive victory is usually followed by a disappointing defeat. Johnson threw a straight right hand that landed just behind the ear of Martins, knocking him out cold at:49 of the third round.
