Though it is really the just one battle that Nunes’ UFC job that has not resulted in a stoppage, Nunes sees the rematch as a probability to kickstart her reign as legitimate women’s bantamweight champion.

Campbell on why Shevchenko will acquire: It was obvious late for the duration of her a few-round determination decline to Nunes at UFC 196 in 2016 that Shevchenko, a bit of gradual starter, experienced figured out how to defeat Nunes. The gain of a 5-round battle in Saturday’s rematch plays to Shevchenko’s strengths in lots of means, which has played into her getting to be the betting favourite. Shevchenko is tricky, compact and quite hard to end. Nunes’ reputation for suspect cardio in the late rounds will be analyzed like never ever in advance of from the calculated counter striker.

Intelligent on why Nunes will acquire: The champ feels like she’s still not receiving regard from fans — or the firm for that subject. I you should not know about the argument with the firm as she headlined two of the a few major PPVs of 2016 and will once more on Saturday for 2017, but Nunes has been down-ideal filthy due to the fact signing up for UFC. She has fought eight periods and scored six stoppages wins, specifically above Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey in just above 4 minutes combined. Despite the fact that Shevchenko is the only fighter to take her the length, I consider Nunes is peaking at the ideal time and will employ her exceptional boxing potential to keep her title where by she originally won it in Las Vegas a calendar year back. 

Reiter on why Romero will acquire: Romero’s age, knowledge and expertise translate to a calmer fighter in the Octagon. That indicates his energy bests Whittaker’s velocity, and in a battle that goes the length, he’s capable to pull the upset and grind down through tolerance and expertise of a fighter whose technically much better, but turns out to be tactically fewer perilous.

Coca on why Overeem will acquire: A rubber match six decades in the building and just one neither Overeem nor Werdum can manage to drop. For Overeem, 58 fights into what will ultimately be a Corridor of Fame job, and the just one detail he’s yet to get his palms on is the UFC heavyweight title. If Overeem can prevent receiving taken down in the battle and it stays in the stand up, appear for Overeem to land some enormous punches and put Werdum to snooze. Overeem is familiar with this could be his last probability to land a title shot and he’s likely to be completely ready to get there.
