MMA DFS Playbook: UFC 215

After a brief pause to ensure all scores were accurate, Bruce Buffer read out the results: Amanda Nunes retained her bantamweight title via a close split decision.

Nunes took on Valentina Shevchenko, a woman she had faced before and was supposed to face two months ago. Midway through the stanza, Shevchenko scored with a nice combination at long range, and she started putting her strikes together effectively as Nunes slowed down. Ever-competitive women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes keeps her mind off her weight cut with video game soccer. The pair met previously in a three-round bout at UFC 196, with the Brazilian Nunes earning the decision victory.

If there is a third fight, it would probably turn out the same way. Both of these ladies ruled their division, and now it's clear that Nunes is absolutely queen, even if Nunes' split-decision win wasn't that impressive. Still, the champion did not take much damage.

Nunes had no issue with how it turned out, though.

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

Across the ring, Shevchenko stood in utter disbelief, her arms upraised as the crowd booed. Nunes was also highly criticized after pulling out of the UFC 213 bout, so she is likely to come in with a chip on her shoulder. She continued to look tentative with her striking, however. "Her nose is red from my punches". I think I did really well. Later on, the challenger would touch Nunes with a right hand, then catch a kick, only to take a punch from Nunes for her efforts.

Cleveland Indians had their suspicions about the sign-stealing Boston Red Sox
Speaking to reporters in in Boston on Tuesday, the commissioner said, "We actually do not have a rule against sign stealing". It's not known how long the Red Sox have been at it, but it's been "at least several weeks", according to Schmidt.

She added: 'I definitely will win this next fight. Still, Nunes has looked incredible in her last two fights. But with little grappling, the match was essentially a kick boxing bout and it didn't tax Nunes.

But Nunes, of South Florida by way of Brazil, had more gas in the tank at the end.

"I made sure I knew she would be the one who would be exhausted, not me", Nunes said.

Neither fighter was able to pull ahead significantly in the third, a testament to the evenly matched nature of the bout, and while Nunes marched forward, Shevchenko fired back counters, leaving the scoring of the round down to what the judges put more stock in.

Nunes was all smiles, though, and gleefully posed for photos with the hockey players later. "People thought I couldn't do five rounds", she said on the FOX Sports post-fight show. "I totally disagree with this decision".
