Amanda Nunes is slated to defend her UFC bantamweight title against Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 213 in July although the bout is yet to be announced by the UFC but it seems it will feature on the card with the possibility of the main event spot.

Nunes is looking to make her second successful title defense after demolishing former champ Ronda Rousey in just 48 seconds at UFC 207. The American Top Team fighter is currently on a five-fight win streak winning four by finishes and currently holds a win over current featherweight champion Germaine De Randamie.
