    I'm not a fan of newly crowned champions deciding who is worthy/unworthy of a title shot. IMHO, Nunes would've lost against Valentina if the fight had been 5 rounds. Nunes knows this and is aware of her cardio deficiencies, as evident when she said she didn't want to let Tate get to the 2nd round.

    Valentina should prove herself? She just beat a former champ and was looking better than Nunes towards the end of their fight. I sense some ducking already and she's only been champ for a couple of weeks.

    So the last 2 champions have tried to handpick their first defense? Shev would beat her in a title fight.

    it is the fight to make right now, although I think Nunes has a point that she just beat Valentina.

    Pena vs Tate
    Holm vs Zingano
    Nunes vs Shevchenko

    unless one of them wants to fight Cyborg next...

    Sounds to me like she knows that belt might be waving bye-bye in a rematch.

    Holy crap! That was for Nunes when she returned w/ the belt? She's big time.

    I think I see Paul Harris; he's underneath the duck, and he's salivating.

    Let fucking Tate, and Bisping pick their fucking opponents and this is what you get.

    Way to go UFC. What a fucking joke.

    This is who you fight. You don't want that fight it's no problem. We're stripping you of your belt.

    Cherry picking doesn't seem to be working too well lately, though. Maybe these champs should just fight the next in fucking line. They are an embarrassment imo.

    If Left Hook Larry loses I will bust a gut laughing.

    I'm actually happy for Nunes being champion, she actually seems like a nice person and is a savage in the octagon. However, I have to mute the volume every time she talks, it's very cringe.

    I don't like ANY champion making those calls. Champions don't get to formulate the rankings.

    I like the way you think. I just dislike it more when new ones do it.

    As an immigrant and English second language myself, I give her props for trying--it's tough. I remember when I wasn't fluent.

    lol Nunes already mouthing off... this should be fun. I say throw Valentina at her asap, see how she likes it over 5 rounds, the division's already a total shitshow, might as well ignite further mayhem with another belt switch...
