Female bantamweights meet in the prelims as Sara McMann takes on unbeaten Brazilian Ketlen Vieira, who will be aiming to make it three wins in just under twelve months in the UFC, and in turn propel herself into the top ten at 135 pounds. Then the stars show off their skills in front of fans at the official open workouts, where UFC welterweight Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone and heavyweight Cain Velasquez hold court with Milan Lucic and Darnell Nurse of the Edmonton Oilers.
With the win, Nunes improves to 15-4; Shevchenko falls to 14-3.
This weekend, current champion, Amanda Nunes, will face old rival, Valentina Shevchenko in a rematch, with far more on the line than in their first encounter.

"I was not concerned about anything [entering Round 5]", Nunes said. She didn't hit me one time, not one punch. "The specialist did a really good job taking care of this, and right now I have all the medication that I need and I'm 100 percent ready for this fight".
Borg, 24, is young in his career but has a history of pulling out of fights. Shevchenko, a.k.a. Bullet, meanwhile, would look to get back in the title hunt.
It is safe to say the UFC counted on Rousey and Holm to bring attention to the women's weight classes and they did not envision having Nunes and Shevchenko at the top of the weight class. Four additional preliminary card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.
