Nunes-Shevchenko to main event UFC 213; Romero-Whittaker will co-main

UFC president Dana White on Tuesday announced big changes to the UFC 213 card on July 8 in Las Vegas.

Amanda Nunes (14-4) will defend her women’s bantamweight title against Valentina Shevchenko (14-2) in the main event at T-Mobile Arena, while middleweights Yoel Romero (12-1) and Robert Whittaker (19-4) will battle for the interim title in the co-main event.

The scheduled bantamweight title bout between Cody Garbrandt and TJ Dillashaw, both of whom have served as coaches in the current season of The Ultimate Fighter, has been removed from the card.
