Valentina The Bullet Schevchenko Shirt
In her last three fights, Valentina “The Bullet” Schevchenko has quickly established herself as a force in the UFC women’s Bantamweight division. With wins over former champion Holly Holm and strong competitor Juliana Pena, she earned herself a title shot against the Champion Amanda Nunes.
Before beginning her MMA career, Valentina was an extremely accomplished Muay Thai fighter. A multi-time champion, fighting all over the world and training out of the famous Tiger Muay Thai gym.
But that’s not all. What makes Valentina such a dangerous opponent in the cage is not just her athleticism but her lifestyle. Her interest in physical exercise doesn’t stop with MMA and Muay Thai. She’s also an accomplished dancer, a blackbelt in Judo, and a blackbelt in TaeKwonDo. When she’s not in the gym or on the dance floor, she enjoys shooting guns. Having and living out an aggressive mentality makes Valentina a formidable fighter.
Valentina Schevchenko was supposed to face the UFC Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes in June of 2017. A fight that the fight world was looking forward to. Unfortunately, Amanda called off the fight due to medical reasons related to her chronic Sinusitis. Although the timing of the decision was poor, I understand Amanda’s reason for making the decision. Sinusitis causes difficulty in breathing for Amanda. And if I were getting in the cage with a strong and dangerous fighter like Valentina, I wouldn’t want to be having any breathing problems either.
Unfortunately, not fighting meant that Valentina suffered both psychologically and financially. A strong fighter in the head, the heart, and the spirit. Nothing can keep Valentina down. If anything the fight world is looking forward to Valentina vs Amanda Nunes even more.
