UFC free fight: Amanda Nunes edges Valentina Shevchenko in closely contested rematch
Nunes, the UFC women’s bantamweight and featherweight champion, had to fight Shevchenko twice – the first en route to the UFC belt and the second as champion. Perhaps the most debated win came in the second meeting back at UFC 215 in 2017. That night, Nunes defended her belt by defeating Shevchenko in a close split decision. It was a competitive fight that still causes debate.

Nunes is gearing up for a title defense for her 135-pound title. She takes on Mexico’s Irene Aldana in the main event of UFC 289 on June 10 in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
