June 28, 2017 UFC

Nunes versus Shevchenko 2 will be the 213th UFC betting event in the timeline of the MMA promotion.

The main card will also feature a Cuban Missile, a Cowboy, a Reaper, and a Ruthless individual.

Amanda Nunes (c) vs. Valentina Shevchenko
Weight class: Bantam
Notes: UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship Match

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:

Valentina Shevchenko – 2½ (-140) -125
Amanda Nunes – 2½ (+120) +105

Nunes has won her last five straight fights – actually, let’s amend that to her last five consecutive fights – the last of which have been for the title; she won it from Miesha Tate by submission at UFC 200 on July 9, 2016 and retained it against Ronda Rousey at UFC 207 on December 30, 2016 (both matches took place in Las Vegas). 

Shevchenko is coming off back-to-back wins over Holly Holm (unanimous decision at UFC on Fox 20 on July 23, 2016) and Julianna Peña (submission at UFC on Fox 23 on January 28, 2017). Her most recent defeat was precisely a UD loss to Nunes at UFC 196 on March 5, 2016 in Vegas. 

Yoel Romero vs. Robert Whittaker UFC betting preview
Weight: Middle
Notes: Interim UFC Middleweight Championship Match

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:

Robert Whittaker – 1½ (-170) -120 
Yoel Romero – 1½ (+150) EV

Romero is riding an eight-fight winning streak and is undefeated in the UFC. Like Depeche Mode we don’t want to start any blasphemous rumours, but the Cuban Missile describes himself as “the right hand of God” who will “cleanse the division and bring greatness to it.” 

Whittaker is on a multiple-bout winning streak of his own, having won his last seven in a row. Bobby Knuckles is more enthusiastic about fighting Romero than about the interim title, as well he should be. “I like fighting tough dudes, and more than the interim belt I’m excited to fight Yoel Romero,” he told Submission Radio. “He’s been like number one contender since practically he got up there and I want to fight him.”

Robbie Lawler vs. Donald Cerrone UFC betting preview
Weight: Welter

Sportsbook odds for fans who bet on UFC:

Donald Cerrone – 2½ (-130) +130 

Robbie Lawler – 2½ (+110) -150

Lawler saw a five-fight winning streak – as well as string of three successful championship matches – come to an end when he lost the welterweight title to Tyron Woodley by KO at UFC 201 on July 30, 2016 in Atlanta.

Similarly, Cowboy Cerrone had a four-bout winning streak snapped by Jorge Masvidal at UFC on Fox: Shevchenko vs. Peña on January 28, 2017 in Denver. Cerrone is accustomed to fighting four times a year, so when Dana White shelved him for six months he called it a “timeout.” “There’s no thrill like a fight in the world,” Cerrone said. “And I make a s—load of money doing it, so I get to go on a spending spree afterward.” Maybe Dana should have called it an “intervention” instead of a “timeout.”
