After a year of uncertainty, the UFC women’s bantamweight division is starting to round into shape. The next piece of the puzzle is to find Amanda Nunes’ next challenger for the gold and that will either be Valentina Shevchenko or Julianna Pena.
UFC has brought plenty of excitement to Denver, as the main card features plenty of finishers including Donald Cerrone, Andrei Arlovski and Francis Ngannou, to name a few.
Valentina Shevchenko (-135) vs Julianna Pena (+105)
O UFC Fight Night Denver, que acontece neste sábado, em Colorado (EUA), conta com uma luta principal importante para a categoria peso galo feminino da organização. O duelo entre Valentina Shevchenko e Julianna Peña deve garantir a posição de próxima desafiante ao título, em posse da campeã Amanda Nunes. Com Donald Cerrone, Andrei Arlovski e mais quatro brasileiros no card, o show apresenta odds que podem render até 1000% de lucro aos apostadores.
Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena will clash in the main event when the UFC takes to Denver, Colorado on January 28, with a women’s bantamweight title shot likely awaiting the winner. There is no doubt that Amanda Nunes has cemented herself as the top dog in the division, but both Shevchenko and Pena have the skills to carry the gold in 2017.
With each woman right behind Nunes in the rankings, books have opened both Shevchenko and Pena at -115.
It took just 48 seconds for Ronda Rousey’s triumphant return to end in disaster at UFC 207. In less time than it takes to get a cup of coffee in the morning, Rousey’s entire future in the sport of MMA became one big question mark.
Not long after her loss to Amanda Nunes, Rousey released a statement saying that she will “need to take some time to reflect and think about the future.”
O fim de semana não conta com nenhum evento do UFC, mas isso não significa que o mundo das lutas vai parar. Calma! O Bellator 170, que acontece neste sábado, em Los Angeles (EUA), coloca frente a frente dois dos maiores falastrões da história do MMA. Tito Ortiz e Chael Sonnen farão a luta principal do show em confronto de ex-astros do UFC. O duelo ocorre pela categoria dos meio-pesados.
Chael Sonnen will make his Bellator debut on January 21 in Hollywood and his opponent is no stranger to “The American Gangster.” Some 20-plus years ago, Sonnen pinned an opponent in collegiate wrestling in 30 seconds, which would be an innocuous event if the opponent didn’t turn out to be Tito Ortiz.
Sonnen opened as a -155 favorite for the grudge match that nobody, including Sonnen himself, knew existed, with Ortiz coming back at +125.
Conor McGregor cemented himself in history after winning the UFC lightweight gold at UFC 205, becoming the first fighter in the company’s history to hold two belts simultaneously. The biggest star in MMA today has said he will take some time away from the cage with his girlfriend expecting the birth of his first child, but that has not stopped the speculation about who ‘The Notorious One’ will face next.
That, of course, means books have posted odds about who McGregor will face next.
The path here wasn’t pretty, or free of controversy, but BJ Penn is set to make his return to the Octagon, as “The Prodigy” faces Yair Rodriguez at UFC Fight Night 103 in Phoenix. Penn is not getting an easy win here, as Rodriguez is one of the best young fighters in the organization.
Aside from the main event, the card doesn’t feature much in terms of name value but fighters like Joe Lauzon, Marcin Held and Sergio Pettis offer plenty of intrigue.
