UFC Fight Night - Shevchenko Vs. Pena

UFC Fight Night coming from Denver. The main event winner will likely fight for the next women's Bantamweight Title fight. With only two losses for both of them, this could be a fun fight. Surprising to see it as a main event, but these are two well rounded fighters who deserve the spotlight. The co-main event of Donald Cerrone versus Jorge Masvidal features two star lightweights who both moved up to welterweight. Cerrone has only lost 2 of his last 14 fights, and won the last 4 since moving to welterweight. Cerrone is one of the most exciting fighters in the UFC and with a win will be a fight away from a title fight. Masvidal has won 6 of his last 10 fights with two KO victories. Masvidal has been calling for this fight for a little while now. He has had a lot of negative things to say about Cerrone. That alone will make this an exciting fight, but stylistically this fight should be entertaining.  Arlovski versus Ngannou might be the most exciting fight on the card. Arlovski is on a 3 fight losing streak coming against really top level guys, but before that he was on a 6 fight win streak. Arlovski is a former Heavyweight Champion in the UFC is a real test for Ngannou. Ngannou has won 4 fights in the UFC with 3 knockouts and 1 submission. As weak and injured as the division is this could put Ngannou a fight away from a title fight. Overall the main card should be an exciting card of fights with about 6 possible title contenders in action.
