On Saturday, July 8, the UFC will host UFC 213: Nunes vs. Shevchenko 2 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, reigning women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes rematches Valentina Shevchenko. The pair met previously at UFC 196, with the Brazilian Nunes taking home a unanimous decision win. Since then, Nunes has defeated former titleholders Miesha Tate and Ronda Rousey to sit atop the 135-pound division. Shevchenko, meanwhile, bounced back from the loss to Nunes with wins over former champion Holly Holm and TUF winner Julianna Pena to earn her shot at gold.

The co-main also features gold on the line as Yoel Romero and Robert Whittaker clash for the interim middleweight title.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

The fighters will hit the scales at 5 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
