UFC Fight Night 156 “Shevchenko vs Carmouche” Preview and Predictions

UFC Fight Night 156 delivers an entertaining semi main event and what should be an amazing Main event as Valentina Shevchenko looks to exact revenge for a loss to Liz Carmouche that apparently happened in a remote venue in Oklahoma when Shevxhenko came back off a long lay off. I have found zero video or pics from this fight so I don’t know what to tell you. Mike Perry looks to bring the fire tonight and has been in prime form during the pre fight weigh ins and face offs. That should be a fun one as Vicente Luque is all business and ready for a war.Here are my predictions for the full card. Feel free to tell me where you disagree.
