MMA: UFC 196-Nunes vs Shevchenko Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The UFC is off to Denver, Colorado, where they staged their very first show way back in 1993. Headlining next Saturday’s show is a women’s bantamweight contender matchup between Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena. Welterweights Donald Cerrone and Jorge Masvidal will compete in what should be a thrilling co-main event.

Also on the main card, heavyweight prospect Francis Ngannou will take on former champion Andrei Arlovski, while Jason Knight battles Alex Caceres in the featherweight division. The top two prelim bouts feature middleweights Nate Marquardt and Sam Alvey, as well as bantamweights Aljamain Sterling and Raphael Assuncao.
