Valentina Shevchenko, after failing to take the title of the world weight-bearing “bantamweight” in the UFC, will prove to be more successful in the “flyweight” weight.
The 30-year-old will be in duel at the UFC-228 event, which will be held on September 8 in Dallas against the champion in power of this division, Nicco Montano. A strong predicted confrontation, as this weight is newly opened in mixed martial arts. Montano won the title in December 2017 and is still the first and only champion of this Division, while still defending the title.
Montano, 4 wins and 2 UFC defeats will find it difficult to defend the chain in front of a veteran athlete such as Shevchenko (15 wins and 3 defeats), aiming to take the title “flyweight” champion. Speaking of this event, a sportsman born in Russia, but with Peruvian citizenship, says: “I’m ready, I’m doing well and I believe that the title of this Division will change hands soon. I’m not afraid of Montano, I’m faced with a lot of champions and I know how to face these challenges. She is a good sportsman, I respect him, but I love this title more than ever, “said Shevchenko./Flashsport24
