UFC on FOX 20 Highlight: Holly Holm vs. Valentina Shevchenko

Published

on

Former Muay Thai and Kickboxing world champion Valentina Shevchenko (13-2) made a huge statement in the world of mixed martial arts tonight in Chicago. Shevchenko fought a smart and calculated fight in her first 5 round main event taking the contest on all 3 judges scorecards via 49-46 against former UFC women’s bantamweight champ Holly Holm (10-2).

This victory inserts Shevchenko right into the title picture at 135 lbs. where you could easily make an argument for a rematch with current champion Amanda Nunes who bested the Russian earlier this year via UD at UFC 196.

With a potential return from former 6x defending champ Ronda Rousey later this year and Miesha Tate still very much in the picture – this is an exciting time for a division that is still very much in development mode.
