Yoel Romero explains love-hate relationship with Michael Bisping

It's typically one of the biggest weekends of the year for the company. I beat all the top (fighters) before I got the belt.

Las Vegas has once again been taken over by UFC fans, as they flood into the city for another International Fight week.

There's no returning Brock Lesnar. Conor McGregor's rise to mainstream superstardom. Nunes' win was stunningly easy, but she was completely overshadowed by the antics of original headliner Conor McGregor, who was in the middle of establishing his power over the UFC, and his replacement Jon Jones, who got pulled at the last minute and stripped of his light heavyweight title because of his involvement in a hit-and-run.

"I still feel like I have to keep winning", Nunes (14-4) said in a phone interview.

"After this fight everything can happen", Nunes says.

MMA Fighting's Ariel Helwani first reported the situation.

There's little evidence to suggest this to be the case. This was a season in which the UFC brought back fighters who had tried to succeed through TUF in the UFC. For example, after beating Ronda Rousey, Holly Holm was on the undercard of a Conor McGregor fight. It's Shevchenko's only finish in the UFC, and first submission win in over a decade. Everything I took from that fight I will use.

That being said, she has had some rough performances. Nunes calmly took her downed opponent's back, sunk in both hooks and tapped Tate with a rear-naked choke. Finally, and most bizarrely, the women's featherweight division crowned its first champion in February, only for Germaine de Randamie to be stripped of the title because she refused to fight Cris "Cyborg" Justino, who was the reason the division was created in the first place. There's a lot to be said for that. However, I believe Nunes has made drastic improvements that we haven't seen yet.

With the withdrawal, the scheduled fight between Yoel Romero and Robert Whittacker has now become the main event and UFC 213 will proceed with 11 fights. The event is headlined by Michael Johnson and Justin Gaethje.

He should be able to outwrestle Whittaker and put him in compromising positions. Romero finds himself interrogated by heavyweight Fabricio Werdum. Selling the bout as a trilogy fight may have helped. His overall professional record though is an impressive 51-10-1 and with a nickname like "The Boa Constrictor" you can bet that Browne is planning on a long range fight!

If one PPV card on Saturday night isn't enough, tune in Friday night on Fox Sports 1 for The Ultimate Fighter Finale 25.

The pay-per-view portion of the card begins at 7 p.m. The 29-year-old has won five straight fights. Both Jedrzejczyk (14-0) and Shevchenko (14-2) have competed at 125 pounds before coming to UFC and each fighter has shared interest in competing there once UFC adds the new flyweight division that White confirmed in May is coming. There is no doubt in my mind that these are the two best female bantamweights in the world and this weekend they will prove it.
