Valentina Shevchenko stuns Holly Holm at UFC Chicago – Times Union


CHICAGO (AP) β€” A traumatic start at Valentina Shevchenko’s training camp didn’t deter her from pulling off another shocking upset in the UFC women’s bantamweight division. Less than two months ago, Shevchenko was at a chicken restaurant in Lima, Peru, when it was raided by armed robbers. Shevchenko (13-2) put herself in the mix to contend for the women’s bantamweight title at 135 pounds that is held by Amanda Nunes, who she lost to in March at UFC 196. In the third round, after Shevchenko got in a few jabs, Shevchenko caught Holm’s leg on a kick attempt and took her down. In the co-main event, Edson Barboza won in a unanimous decision over Gilbert Melendez in a lightweight fight. Melendez attempted a kick, but Barboza caught Melendez’s leg and took him down. Barboza scored with the judges on a number of kicks to Melendez’s left knee in the third round as the judges scored the fight 30-27, 30-27, 29-28 in favor of Barboza.
