UFC 215 results: Amanda Nunes retains bantamweight title with split decision win

It is safe to say the UFC counted on Rousey and Holm to bring attention to the women's weight classes and they did not envision having Nunes and Shevchenko at the top of the weight class. "For two takedowns over five rounds?" Shevchenko looked to counter, mixing in the odd leg kick. "Her nose is red from my punches".

"She did not hit me one time, not one punch", said a bitter Shevchenko, who dislocated her finger in the first round.

She added: 'I definitely will win this next fight.

"I really don't understand why the [scores] go to the other side", Shevchenko said. Nunes-who is known for her fast, furious starts-slow played the first frame, preferring to pick her battles.

Nunes had to be reminded to keep her hands closed.

It is the second time Nunes has beaten Shevchenko in 18 months. Shevchenko slipped a few leg kicks in as well, while Nunes whiffed on a high kick.

Muay Thai champion, Shevchenko, made a big mistake in the fifth round when she gave up her back off a failed throw. Shevchenko got back to her feet, but it was Nunes going all-in for another takedown, and she got it with less than a minute remaining.

PERRY NELSON USA TODAY Rafael Dos Anjos was too good for Neil Magny during UFC 215

In the co-main event, former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos locked in arm-triangle in the first and submitted Neil Magny. 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. Dos Anjos is fighting in his second bout at welterweight, his first being a unanimous decision over Tarec Saffiedine.

"I don't mind it, man".

I honestly believe that these two women are the most well-rounded female MMA fighters on the planet.

Henry Cejudo will face Wilson Reis, the last challenger for Johnson's belt, in the flyweight division on the main card.

Nunes wants to be clear she didn't back down from the challenge. He piled on some grounded shots before the referee stepped in to stop the action. The card originally featured a bout between Demetrious Johnson and Ray Borg, but the fight was cancelled due to an illness.

However, Latifi finished every takedown he attempted and his experience and wrestling acumen was clearly the difference between him and previously undefeated light heavyweight on the night.

The main-card opener featured to be a barnburner, as veteran sluggers Jeremy Stephens (26-14) of San Diego and Gilbert Melendez (22-7) of San Francisco squared off.
