Amanda Nunes Ufc


NUNES IN LAS VEGAS

UFC welterweight and commentator Dan Hardy previews this bantamweight title bout * Saturday 8 July 2017 11:26 BST Click to follow and Valentina Shevchenko of Kyrgyzstan face off during the weigh-in Getty Las Vegas has once again been taken over by UFC fans, as they flood into the city for another International Fight week. The crescendo of card, featuring two of the best heavyweights, two of the best middleweights and the two best female bantamweights in the world.



Highly decorated combat sports athlete and top ranked heavyweight contender Alistair Overeem will be facing former UFC champion and current number one contender Fabricio Werdum. That fight will follow the main card opener between former lightweight champion Anthony Miller. In the co-main event we have another battle for number one contender, but as middleweight champion Michael Bisping is out with a knee injury, the fight between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker will be for the interim world title. Romero has been lingering near the top of the division for some time and many feel like he was deserving of a title shot a while ago.


With a win here over Whittaker, Romero is guaranteed to be next in line to challenge Bisping. The closer the fight gets though, the more opinion seems to be shifting towards Robert Whittaker: since moving to middleweight six fights ago he has looked unstoppable and his last victory over Jacare Souza confirmed that he is the dark horse at 185lbs. Representing Australia and New Zealand, Whittaker is driven by the possibility of being the first to take a UFC belt back to that part of the world.









He is a quiet, friendly, family man with a great work ethic and some obvious natural physical gifts. Speed and power are his most useful attributes and with a lifetime of martial arts training under dangerous strikers.


Yoel Romero on the other hand, is an Olympic level wrestler with more physical attributes than most of the rest of the division combined.
