Valentina Shevchenko Talks Fight Island

The Ultimate Fighters Championship has become divided amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, with fighters like Khabib Nurmagomedov supporting the postponements of fights until social distancing worldwide is lifted. Other individuals like Valentina Shevchenko concede that the UFC shouldn’t back down during this pandemic, that it’ll make the MMA sport look weak. Her sentiments on the UFCs state follow after Valentina Shevchenko was questioned on her next octagon opponent. The Flyweight Champion remarked that her next bout would be held at “UFCs Fight Island”, which Shevchenko was supported since Dana White announced the new format last month.

Valentina Shevchenko maintains her training regiment in Las Vegas, with her living quarters located nearby the strip. This champion has grown accustomed to warm environments with her fighting styles, now avoiding cold locations in which she originated. It’s not surprising that Shevchenko would support the UFCs Fight Island, with her social media accounts displaying a woman that admires travelling. This extends primarily towards tropical destinations, with Fight Island rumoured to be located in the Caribbean.

Valentina’s History

The 2020 Flyweight Champion was born and initially trained in Kyrgyzstani, allowing her capabilities to outweigh her competition. No female opponent has rivalled Shevchenko since her admittance into the Ultimate Fighter’s Championship. She’s now considered to have superior skillsets than Ronda Rousey, the former queen of the UFC. It’ll be interesting if Valentina Shevchenko can maintain this status after tearing her MCL at her last PPV Event. Most MMA analysts were shocked when Shevchenko still won her fight, even with a torn MCL.

It’s expected that Valentina Shevchenko will compete against Joanne Calderwood with her next fight. The Flyweight Champion believes it’ll take place by August 25th to 30th, with Fight Island being considered for the PPV Venue. It’d enable for both Shevchenko and Calderwood to receive a resting period immediately after their bout. Valentina expressed that Fight Island is perfect for UFC competitors, as the facilities are being manufactured exclusively for their sport. This’ll make it easier for opponents to train and complete their requirements for competing in the Octagon.
