The UFC returns on Saturday with a main event featuring a pair of womens bantamweight contenders. Authentic Wholesale Nike Shoes .Former champion Holly Holm and Valentina Shevchenko are both looking to get back on track after falling in their last fights.While both fighters transitioned to MMA after experiencing success in the boxing and kickboxing ring, there are key differences in their games that could make the difference in the Octagon at UFC Fight Night on Saturday.Striking volumeWhile shes best known for her thunderous knockout of Ronda Rousey, Holms usual output is as a volume striker. Coming from a boxing background, she uses a lot of jabs and straights to close the distance and then work on the inside. She also has incorporated a diverse array of kicks to the legs, body and head since making her MMA debut in 2011. For her career, Holm averages 10 significant strike attempts per minute. In her last fight against Miesha Tate, that rate fell to six attempts per minute due to the long stretches of the fight spent on the ground. To be successful, Holm needs to get back to her volume-based approach. Shevchenko likes to counter and has let her opponents dictate the pace of the contest in the UFC. She has averaged only 3.7 significant strike attempts per minute in the promotion. Holm should look to get out to an early lead by controlling distance and pace by throwing a high quantity of strikes.Significant strikes landed per minuteDespite not being the most accurate striker, Holm still lands a respectable 3.46 significant strikes per minute. Her volume approach allows her to land consistently despite missing the majority of her attempts. Shevchenko lands 54 percent of her significant strike attempts, but since she mostly waits and counters, she lands only two significant strikes per minute. To be successful with this style, Bullet will need to load up on power strikes and hope she can hurt the former champion.Striking defenseAnother result of Holms volume approach is successful defense. Holm constantly gets off first, which leaves her opponents stuck playing defense. During her UFC career, she has avoided 67 percent of her opponents significant strike attempts, which is third best among ranked UFC bantamweights. On the other hand, Shevchenko has avoided only 47 percent of opponents attempts, which is well below the average of ranked bantamweights (56 percent). If Shevchenko tries to sit back and counter against Holm, she might find it extremely difficult to land punches.Average fight timeAs the main event, this fight is scheduled for five five-minute rounds. Neither fighter has fought the full 25 minutes in the UFC. However, both fighters often find themselves in long fights. Holm has fought 74 percent of her possible fight time, while Shevchenko has fought to the final bell in both of her three-round fights in the Octagon. Holm has been scheduled for 25 minutes twice in the UFC, so she might have an advantage in terms of preparation. Shevchenko comes from a traditional muay Thai background, where fighters are notorious for starting slowly. Against Amanda Nunes, Shevchenko had her best round by far in the final frame. She landed 17 significant strikes in the third round after landing only 11 in the first two rounds combined. Shevchenko cant afford to give away the first two rounds and will have to keep it close early and try to seal a late win over Holm just like Tate did in March. Nike Shoes From China . There are surprises among the Vezina candidates, but most of the others are standard top-tier performers, even if the two Hart Trophy runners-ups have never been quite as good as they have been through the first half of the season.

The nine-time Big 12 champion Jayhawks are positioning themselves for another title, as they have run out to a flawless 6-0 mark in conference play thus far. . If ever they start actually putting pictures beside words in the dictionary, the Blue Jays left-handers mug will appear beside “Consistency. The Wallabies restored a degree of pride in the gold jersey but the black haze that has hung over Australian rugby remains following another Bledisloe Cup loss.The novelty-sized icon of trans-Tasman relations will stay in New Zealand for a 14th straight year after the All Blacks capitalised on their opportunities to record a 29-9 victory in a stop-start, and heated, affair in Wellington.Frenchman Romain Poites whistle was a constant theme throughout a tense 80 minutes at Westpac Stadium, broken only by the attacking brilliance of Aaron Smith and Beauden Barrett, and the finishing of Israel Dagg and Julian Savea.Matching their sublime first half -- and to a lesser degree the second stanza -- from Sydney seven days ago was always going to be a tough task, yet the All Blacks still showed glimpses of the skills that sets them apart from not only Australia but the rest of the rugby world, too.That was evident in Smiths first-half break in which he beat a swarm of Wallabies defenders; that play eventually resulted in the first of Daggs two tries, and the right winger himself later caught an attacking kick above two Australians in the lead-up to Saveas 41st Test five-pointer.Again New Zealand were playing behind a pack that physically dominated their Wallabies counterparts, and they managed to pick off lineout balls from Australia captain Stephen Moore.The veteran hooker endured another torrid night before he was replaced in the second half with a series of facial cuts. Moore struggled to communicate with the referee, as has been the case throughout his captaincy tenure, and he seemed to get Poite offside early on. From there on, the Frenchman wouldnt entertain a conversation with Moore.But the Reds-bound rakes lineout throwing will be of bigger concern for Wallabies coach Michael Cheika, as will another 30 missed tackles and a couple of moments of ill-discipline that reflect Australias current frustrations.There was certainly a clear focus on physical aggression and intensity from Australia, but that was overcooked by Adam Coleman when he earnedd himself a yellow-card for a blatant shoulder charge shortly before half-time; there is smart aggression and stupid aggression, and Coleman must learn the difference if hes to remain in the squad -- let alone the run-on XV.

Elsewhere, a couple of familiar faces again did their best to inspire Australia.Israel Folau had few opportunities to impress, but he did run off a fine inside ball from Quade Cooper that resulted in one of just two Australian breaks.The other moment came from Will Genia, the Wallabies scrum-half scooting past three All Blacks defenders in the type of run that suggests he might be returning to somewhere near the form that saw him regarded as the worlds best No. 9 before the emergence of Aaron Smith.And then there was Cooper, who may have just killed off the remaining and now plainly embarrassing boos that remain in the country of his birth with a solid game at No.10.Cooper kicked well and threw a handful of nice passes; but more importantly there were no of the hair-brained moments that have highlighted his performances across the Tasman for some time.But to compare Cooper with Barrett at this current juncture is to masquerade sparkling as champagne, chuck steak as fillet - gold as black. And perhaps that perfectly reflects the current Tasman rugby divide.The All Blacks are a team bursting with confidence, a squad loaded with playing talent in which any man can seemingly step in and do a job -- even on debut: case in point Anton Lienert-Brown.The Wallabies, having now lost six Test matches on the trot, are at the opposite end of the spectrum.They now have two weeks to prepare for the Springboks in Brisbane; it looms as another tough fortnight of soul-searching but they can at least take solace in the fact that there was some improvement from their Sydney shocker.The Wallabies moved slightly up from rock bottom on Saturday night, but theres an awfully long way still to climb, too.
