"On Episode 4 of UFC 215 Embedded, bantamweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko talks confidence going into her championship rematch and sees the results of a glam outdoor photo shoot".

Nunes, a native of Brazil, was victorious by decision in their first meeting at UFC 196 in 2016 despite fading late in their three-round fight. She has not really looked overwhelmed in any of her bouts. Her nose is red from my punches and why did she steal [the fight]? "If I have to fight her next, it will for sure be my victory". She didn't win the fight.

"I don't agree with the decision at all", Shevchenko said afterward, adding: "I won this fight". Shevchenko is becoming more active than she was in the first. A superman punch attack followed by a leg by Shevchenko was effective, and whether it was that kick or earlier, Nunes appeared to be bleeding from the leg. Shevchenko continued to fire off combinations in answer to Nunes' pressure, while Nunes was effective in cutting off the cage. "And she's still the champion?" She was angry and said Nunes, arguably the hardest-hitting woman in the sport, landed nothing of significance.

Muay Thai champion, Shevchenko, made a big mistake in the fifth round when she gave up her back off a failed throw. "My strategy was to be calm, do the work and then get the takedowns". He transitioned to mount easily and after landing an elbow; he forced Magny to move and locked up a head and arm choke as he transitioned. The 32-year-old dos Anjos has now won back-to-back fights since making the move to welterweight, having earned a decision in June vs. Tarec Saffiedine. "I finished the fight strong and kept my belt". Cejudo, a former Olympic gold medalist in wrestling, put his boxing skills on display in picking Reis apart.
