Watch UFC Fight Night 156 Shevchenko vs Carmouche online in Australia
Tune in live for the highly anticipated UFC bout between reigning champion Valentina Shevchenko and former title challenger Liz Carmouche.
The Ultimate Fighting Championship, better known as the UFC, makes its debut in Montevideo, Uruguay this weekend with Fight Night 156. It's yet another event that will bring MMA fans several exciting clashes, including two co-headliners.
The Main Card will be topped by the second fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Liz Carmouche. The two met for the first time back in September 2010, when Carmouche came out on top. However, Shevchenko has grown exponentially in the meantime and is now the reigning champion, so it will be interesting to see her attempt to avenge that loss.
The co-main event will see fan-favourite Mike Perry go head to head with Vicente Luque, who is currently enjoying an impressive five-fight win streak.
