    It looks like the winner of Valentina Shevchenko vs. Julianna Pena will be Amanda's next title defense unless someone else gets picked.

    How do you see her fight against either of these two opponents going?

    Valentina would have defeated Nunes if it was a 5 rounder

    Valentina by 48-47 decision or late finish.
    Pena would get walked over easy and don't think she will get through Valentina.

    She most likely loses to both of them.

    I like Val over Amanda in a 5 rounder but not sure I like Val over Pena, she doesn't hesitate to clinch and Pena will welcome that.

    This, I like Vals chances a lot better against Nunes than against Pena even though I think Nunes steamrolls Pena, just goes to show even without Ronda in the picture that division is all about match ups.

    she won by decision, looked horrible on the ground, actually was taken down by Valentina and couldn't submit her

    Nunes famously loses towards the later rounds, Cat/Mcmann Davis, all 3rd round loses.

    Pena is heir to the WMMA wrestling throne lol and beats Val, Nunes fight could go either way depending if Pena can avoid getting bodied early.

    Nunes had her in a deep RNC and Val toughed it out

    After seeing how Rousey got put out last night, I'm down to see Julianna get her face rearranged.

    The hand on the ground tactic saved Nunes a lot of knees to the face in the 3rd round. She won't be able to save herself doing that in 2017.

    Me, personally I don't care, last night she delivered like a boss. I am forever grateful to her.
