UFC 215 takes place Saturday, September 9, at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Two UFC titles are on the line.
In the main event event, UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson looks to make history as he tries to surpass the legendary Anderson Silva’s title defense record. Silva, the former UFC middleweight champion made 10 successful title defenses. Johnson tied him earlier this year and seeks out his 11th win as champion.
Also, UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes will defend her title against Valentina Shevchenko. The two were supposed to fight earlier this summer but Nunes withdrew on fight day for medical reasons. The two fought once before, prior to Nunes’ championship win. Shevchenko dropped a close and controversial decision that night.
