Morning Report: Michael Bisping wants to see Amanda Nunes vs Valentina Shevchenko 3 for ‘BMF Female Title’ at £130

Michael Bisping is hoping the UFC books are about Amanda Nunes vs. Valentina Shevchenko 3, but he wants some special hardware to be ready to grab it.

Last Saturday, Amanda Nunes reclaimed the women’s bantamweight title with a dominant decision victory over Juliana Peña at UFC 277. The win re-established Nunes as the greatest fighter of all time and returned her to double champion status.. After that, the question quickly turned into Nunes’ next step. , and one name seems to have taken the lead: Valentina Shevchenko.

Shevchenko and Nunes have fought twice before, both in bantamweight divisions, with Nunes winning by close resolutions in both fights. After their second meeting, Shevchenko dropped to 125 pounds, as she won the title and established herself as the best fighter in the sport. Over the past two years, as Nunes and Shevchenko have dominated their teams, fans have called for a three-way fight between the two and after UFC 277, Nunes said it was a game, as did UFC president Dana White. UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping is also on board, but due to special circumstances, he would like to see the UFC do something equally special.

“I like to see [a third fight]Bisping said on his YouTube channel. “I talked about this a while ago on the channel, I would like to see Nunes against Valentina Shevchenko at 130 pounds, for a BMF female title. They did it for the men and what is good for the goose is good for the man. Let’s get a female BMF. Valentina’s numbering is 130, and Nunes is down to 130, if she can, and that will be the important thing: If she can.”

A big handicap for the trio at the moment is Peña. Although Venezuela’s The Vixen took a heavy blow from Nunes on Saturday, the former champ is now eager to get another shot at the belt, calling for a three-way fight once she recovers. With Peña and Nunes splitting one win each, while Nunes has already won twice over Shevchenko, the 135-pound title triple might make more sense than a super 130-pound fight. And Bisping acknowledges that at some point, they need to back out of that fight, too.

“Now obviously there’s going to be talk that because both are one, there has to be a rubber match, and technically that’s probably true,” Bisping said. “Will we see one? I don’t know, because it was a dominant performance. So I’m not sure if there are reasons for that – but actually, no. I’m wrong. It’s one each, so they should make a rubber match and put that to be one and all.” .

Fortunately, the choice may be as simple as following UFC 277, Dana White said Peña is headed for surgery and that he wants to give her plenty of time to recover from the beating she took. If Peña is sidelined for some time, that may open the door for Shevchenko to intervene unhindered.
