This July is shaping up to be a wild UFC ride. After the holiday weekend, we have UFC 213 where NUNES VS SHEVCHENKO will bout’ in the Women’s bantamweight. Also, for the interim middleweight championship Romero Vs Whitaker. Pettis Vs Miller on the main card. And heavyweights Werdum VS Overeem! All UFC matches at The Sportsbook Bar & Grill in DTC have NO COVER! So come in and have a few beers, and watch the bouts!
UFC 213 takes place July 8 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Romero vs. Whittaker co-headlines the pay-per-view main card following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Romero, who is riding the longest active UFC winning streak in the middleweight division at eight, was originally targeting a title showdown with current champ Michael Bisping following his knockout of Chris Weidman at UFC 205 last November. However, “The Count” is currently dealing with a knee injury, and could potentially have his on-again, off-again fight with Georges St-Pierre.
That left the UFC to put together a fight between Romero, No. 2 in the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMAjunkie MMA middleweight rankings, to fight No. 4-ranked Whittaker, who has a seven-fight winning streak.
In other news, McGregor challenged Mayweather, and that fight is going to happen. It’s sure to be really exciting. Make sure to save the date in your calendar and make it down to the book to watch history unfold. McGregor is going up against one of boxing’s greatest, and although McGregor is a great UFC fighter the two are vastly different. We will be keeping you all up to date as the events unfold for a night that is sure to go down in boxing history.
