Filed under: Featured , News , UFC , Videos EDMONTON – Despite a sinusitis attack that left her unable to defend her title at UFC 213, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes said not much changed for her third training camp for Valentina Shevchenko . “It was pretty much exactly the same as the other one,” Nunes told MMAjunkie in advance of their re-booking Saturday in the co-headliner of UFC 215, which takes place at Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. “Of course, I had to slow it down a little bit when I came back from (Las) Vegas, but we went over and over the same strategy to get everything sharp.” Related Amanda Nunes knows UFC is punishing her with co-main demotion, isn't worried about it Nunes (14-4 MMA, 7-1 UFC) hooked up with a specialist to monitor her condition and took medication to keep it from flaring up. After the fight, she plans to undergo surgery to make sure sinusitis doesn’t sideline her career again . But as far as learning a new technique or two for Shevchenko (14-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC), a contender she beat last year just four months before claiming the belt, there’s not much she hasn’t studied. The biggest thing she’s tried to ingrain is patience so she doesn’t burn out in later rounds.
