Valentina Shevchenko Record, Ranking
After setting an 11-1 record, Shevchenko made it to the UFC. Although she won her first fight, ‘Bullet’ lost her next fight to Amanda Nunes. To date, Nunes is one of only two women to defeat Kyrgyzstan (the other is Liz Carmouche).
Shevchenko recorded two consecutive victories against Holly Holm and Juliana Pea. He then fought Nunes once again for a bantamweight strap. Unfortunately, she lost by a controversial decision.
Nevertheless, the UFC soon introduced a women’s flyweight division. As a result, Shevchenko returned to his original weight class and presented Priscilla Kachoira via a rear-naked choke.
She then fought Joanna Jedrzejic for the vacant flyweight belt at UFC 231. As in their previous three meetings in amateur Muay Thai, Shevchenko won the match and the belt.
