This coming weekend will bring us another installment of UFC on FOX (UFC on FOX 20 to be exact), and starring in the main event are former champ Holly Holm and Russian striker Valentina Shevchenko.
Both ladies are coming off a loss – Holm got put to sleep by Miesha Tate, while Shevchenko lost a decision to Amanda Nunes (who’s now champ). But Holm was the champ, and Shevchenko has only fought in the Octagon twice… which begs the question: Is Shevchenko truly worthy of getting a marquee bout at this stage?
Well, it turns out that since Ronda Rousey left, the women’s bantamweight division is volatile as hell, with no one able to defend the belt once after winning it. That means that the weight class is wide open for anyone with skills.
And as the video below illustrates, Shevchenko has got skills.
Watch and come to your own conclusions.
