We are fully and completely lost in the post-Ronda Ronda wasteland, a nightmare realm where at any given moment a top-ranked fighter could be champ or a top-ranked fighter could retire. Right now Amanda Nunes is the queen of this apocalypse, but geez, who knows what the future might bring.
One thing is for sure: on Saturday, at UFC on FOX 23, Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena are going to throw down in the main event, and maybe one good performance that night is all it will take for Nunes to have a worthy challenger.
To hype up the match-up, the UFC has given Shevchenko and Pena the “Road to the Octagon” treatment. Watch and learn something.
