Last night, the UFC touched down in the Canadian combat sports mecca of Edmonton, Alberta with the action-packed UFC 215.

It's the third of this year's eight pay-per-view events to lose a main or co-main event within 48 hours of the start of the card.

ESPN's Brett Okamoto cited the possibility of Johnson v Borg being rescheduled for October whilst the UFC has offered a full refund to fans who had purchased tickets to the fight. "But we had sales to overcome those". The UFC's little trip up to Canada was always going to be a slightly smaller PPV event. He would eclipse the record for consecutive title defenses with a win, which would be his eleventh straight defence.

The main event at this weekend's UFC 215 event has been cancelled.

'I really don't understand why the victory goes to the other side, ' said the challenger, who lost by unanimous decision to Nunes in their first meeting.

Ketlen Vieira def. Sara McMannKetlen Vieira pulled off a phenomenal come-from-behind victory when she caught Sara McMann in an arm triangle submission, forcing McMann to submit at 4:16 of the second round. She landed a few good punches but I dominated the rounds and, in the last round, I took her down and kept her there to seal the deal. Of course, Cejudo was has made himself known as a top flyweight contender, but this win puts him back in line for a potential rematch with Johnson. Nunes is someone that relies on strong starts, so she tends to tire as the fight prolongs. Let's see Cejudo fight Sergio Pettis for a title eliminator bout.

The bout has particular significance to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

Trump addresses USA state governors about Hurricane Erma
Trump invited members of the Cabinet and their spouses to Camp David for the weekend, the White House said. Trump himself: "Our mission here is, "Where ever Irma goes, we'll be there first.

There is one match-up which really salivates the mouth, however, and that is Robbie Lawler.

The Amanda Nunes era of women's bantamweight continued at UFC 215 on Saturday. I mean, I want to fight for the crowd, but this fight was for me to show I can go five rounds, to prove that I'm improving.

It wasn't just the stance which drew the comparisons with the Irishman, though, as Cejudo's calm state and oblivious reactions to getting tagged were McGregor-like.

Nunes said she thinks her mission will be more attainable Saturday than it would have been in July at T-Mobile Arena when she insists she wasn't healthy despite being cleared to fight. With under two minutes left, Shevchenko tried to turn a Nunes takedown into a throw, but Nunes ended up on her back on the mat.

Following a heartbreaking loss in the first fight where Shevchenko poured on the punishment late but couldn't get a finish after losing the first two rounds, she felt victory was in her hands at UFC 215 only to have it snatched away again by split decision.

"I was not concerned about anything [entering Round 5]", Nunes said.

Shevchenko, a Kyrgyzstan fighter nicknamed Bullet, is 14-3. The doctors suggested you have to do this surgery, you can't fight like that. ESPN scored it 48-47 for Shevchenko. "But I think it's a unanimous decision". Nunes and Shevchenko will likely be closely matched rivals similar to Tyron Woodley and Stephen Thompson.
