UFC 215: Results and best moments

Nunes has smashed her way to the top of her class over the past 14 months.

And when UFC commentator Joe Rogan mentioned the possibility of a third fight between the pair, Shevchenko was adamant. "I don't understand - it was a mess".

Henry Cejudo: " I hadn't won in the Octagon since December 2015 so it feels incredible to get the victory tonight. Nothing significant. Look at her face?

It was a night of mixed results for the Canadian contingent that hit the cage in Edmonton as the trio of competitors from British Columbia all emerged victorious, while the two other represents from the Great White North were on the business end of one-sided encounters on Saturday night.

It's a valid question without a real answer, as even if you didn't think she won the fight (I did, for the record), there is no real way to be critical of her conditioning or her overall performance. Compare that to 91.5% when she fought Rousey, 85.7% against Tate, and 65.4% when she fought Shevchenko the first time. Latifi managed to catch a low kick and bring the fight to the ground, but during a scramble, Pedro managed to get back to his feet Pedro nearly landed a clean head kick on Latifi, but the experienced wrestler used it as another opportunity to secure the round.

Nunes went on to reveal that travelling at altitude exacerbates her condition and it's left her in no doubt that she now needs an operation to fix the problem. The Brazilian bounced back in the third landing some strong overhand rights. "If I have to fight her next, it will be my victory", Shevchenko added. Shevchenko continued to get her shots in, but she wasn't busy enough to get Nunes' attention for any length of time. I also have a great boxing team around me to create more dynamic striking. "My strategy was to be calm, do the work and then get the takedowns".

In the co-main event, Rafael dos Anjos breezed by Neil Magny. He said after the win he's coming for the welterweight belt.

With Johnson looking on, Henry Cejudo made a statement in the flyweight division, finishing Wilson Reis in the second round. He piled on some grounded shots before the referee stepped in to stop the action. The two were supposed to fight earlier this year, but the Brazilian was forced out with 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 preliminary card is headlined by a bout between Sara McMann, a former title challenger, and Ketlen Vieira, while the main card will open with a bout between Gilbert Melendez and Jeremy Stephens. Jeremy Stephens and Gilbert Melendez battered each other for three rounds with Stephens walking away with the win and both fighters pocketing an additional $50,000 for winning Fight of the Night honors.
