Main Card

Valentina Shevchenko

UFC’s reigning women’s flyweight champion Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko hails from Lima, Peru. The 31-year-old champion fights out of Tiger Muay Thai and currently owns an 18-3 professional MMA record. She came to the UFC in 2105 and she has won seven of her ten fights in the professional organization. She only won twice and it was to Amanda Nunes but since then no other fighter has been able to stop her. Shevchenko was able to stop big names in women’s MMA that include Holly Holm, Julianna Pena, Priscila Cachoeira, Jessica Eye and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Her latest win was against Liz Carmouche. Expect Shevchenko to go for the submission but she can also pack some power in those hands as well.

Katlyn Chookagian

Kaitlyn Chookagian is a female lightweight fighter that cam from Jersey City in New Jersey USA. She is dubbed as the “Blonde Fighter” and fights out of Team Renzo Gracie and Allstar BJJ. Her current MMA professional fighting record stands at 13-2. Chookagian entered the UFC in 2016 as an undefeated fighter. Since then she won six of the matches in the UFC. She currently came from back-to-back wins against Joanne Calderwood and Jennifer Maia and both of them came from unanimous decisions. Against Shevchenko, this is the fight of her life but it takes a lot of skill and IQ to beat the current champion. Expect her to hang on until the last round but it will look to favor her opponent if that happens.
