Holly Holm vs Valentina Shevchenko highlights

Valentina Shevchenko outstrikes former champion Holly Holm

Valentina ‘Bullet’ Shevchenko put on the performance of her life to soundly beat former bantamweight champion Holly Holm in the main event of UFC Chicago on Saturday night.

Despite being dropped by a crisp left hand from Holm in the first, Shevchenko’s dynamic barrage of jabs, inside leg kicks and right hooks stifled ‘The Preacher’s Daughter’ for the remaining four stanzas of the contest, to win her a unanimous decision.

Speaking after the bout, Shevchenko declared that the stunning performance was down to a lifetime spent training in martial arts.
