Amanda Nunes gave herself a passing grade for her performance at UFC 215 Saturday night.

The end result was Nunes edging out the victory as she picks up her second win over Shevchenko, who was clearly dejected by the scoring offered by the judges in the fight.

Ultimately, she was safe, conserved her energy and power until deep into the fight and just did enough to squeak the decision, much to Shevchenko's vexation.

The night's co-main event saw former UFC lightweight champion Rafael dos Anjos move one step closer to title contention at welterweight. I thought it was a clear victory for me.

"I really don't understand why the [scores] go to the other side", Shevchenko said.

"I think in the fourth, she got me a little bit", Nunes explained. "Then, I will have a beer and we'll decide what's next". He landed a leg kick that dropped Magny and then took top position.

'Man, I'm coming for that belt. "I really don't understand why [I lost]". She has a bad reputation for being a "first-round fighter", but she looked as fresh as a daisy going into the championship founds.

"I want my title, and I'm ready to take one more fight against Amanda because I don't agree [with the decision], and I know it was my fight", Shevchenko said. I knew she was the one getting exhausted, not me.

"I think three of five rounds, I won exactly".

And he did it adopting the wide karate stance made famous by McGregor and Lyoto Machida - the latter playing a big role in his training camp. She has been able to overwhelm most of her opponents with her striking. "I decided at the end of the [fifth] round, 'Let's take her down, ' because I know she is going to get exhausted". "I will be champion". That's good for both of us and there would be more money for me, of course. I felt him get exhausted in the third round and that's when I knew I had him. But if no, if they don't want to promote me, that's cool, too. Stephens won by unanimous decision.

Jeremy Stephens: " It feels incredible to get the win tonight.

Nunes established her range and set the pace in the first round, cracking the lead leg of Shevchenko with venomous kicks. "I'll figure out what's next after that!" In the final fifth round, only one takedown and she didn't do nothing, just one takedown. Moras submitted veteran Ashlee Evans-Smith via an armbar in the first round. Glenn outstruck Tucker 184 to 43 en route to a decision victory.

Mitch Clarke was defeated by TKO after being badly bloodied during his fight with Alex White.

Latifi scored takedowns in each round, dropping Pedro on his head in the second, en route to a unanimous decision.

In the following fight, Canadian heavyweight Arjan Singh Bhullar became the first fighter of South Asian origin to compete in the UFC, beating Luis Henrique. However, Borg fell ill during fight week and the bout was canceled on the eve of weigh-ins.

Urban Meyer weighs in on Ohio State's passing game
Ohio State is plenty capable of moving the football but to outscore the Sooners by a touchdown in this game is very debatable. OU's playoff chances faded last September with losses to Houston and Ohio State in the season's first three weeks.
