                    I love Jessie but how is she fighting Valentina. Eye is great but how does she get a shot at her. I’m thinking about training for a few days and go ask for a tittle shot

                          VALENTINA is such a force at FLYWEIGHT.  Great respect for JOANNA J for going 5 rounds against this MMA beast.  JJ might be the only girl to go all 5 rounds at UFC FLYWEIGHT against VALENTINA for a long time.  At 125 pounds VAL is gonna finish a lot of fights early.  The JESSICA EYE part of the discussion starts at the 13:10 mark.

                              Her resume speaks for itself. This interview really brought out a professional fighter's perspective and how a balanced approach is what it takes to make it to the top. I really hope Valentina writes a book about her path and journey one day! #RespectAPro.
                              Thanks Luke et al. The interview's a keeper.

                                  @paleryder Same. But it's an interesting matchup... Let's see how Suarez develops at 115 first though.

                                  Guess we'll find out if that fight ever happens. I think Valentina is way too much for Suarez to handle.

                                      en pocas palabras valentina es la mejor peleadora de todos los tiempos, nadie la vencerá nunca, valentina es la verdadera campeona de peso gallo femenino, valentina le gana a ciborg a nunes a holly y las demás no tienen opción con valentina.

                                    Jessica Eye gonna gets her ass whooped. She has nothing to offer, what would make me think she could beat the Bullet. But I undestand she wanna promote her fight, so i try not to cringe about her Tweets...

                                      @Estrela do Dia It depents on wich game plan Amanda would choose. If she decide to strike with her, she not gonna win. If she choose to go to the ground, it depents on how good Amanda can get people to the ground (she couldn't get Valentina at 4 of 5 trys). Styles make fights. Just because Roxanne could do it, doesn't mean Amanda can. And btw, there are plenty of girls OVER Roxanne, who don't have any chance against Antonina. Again: Styles make fights. You should learn it virgin. I bet you're one of those dumb asses who now call Antonina a "hypejob" after one loss in over ten years and 26 fights. I should know better and stop argue with you casuals, you guys are retarted.

                                      It was you who once said that if Antonina fought with Amanda would be the last day of Amanda as champion. hahahahahaha If Antonina fight Amanda is going to be a massacre, Antonina does not fight MMA.

                                      I don’t see anyone beating her or Amanda at 135. Even though their 2nd fight was boring they should rematch

                                    Firstly , she specializes in Muy Thai Thailand is the Mecca of that art. Of course everyone is going to go back there to train if they are in that style. Next I love Valentina Shevchenko, she’s a badass ninja

                                      It's also really cheap. The cost of training, eating and paying for facilities and staff is a fraction of what it would be in Colorado. She'll still get high level training but her money goes far.

                                    Bearded guy, Luke, please when you're interviewing Val, keep the camera on her skype. Please don't go from her face to yours. That's like looking at a Kandinsky, then a Jackson Pollock. Or being really hungry, expecting the great "Meatloaf Monday" menu's been replaced by the "All You Can Eat Kale Buffet". She's pretty, and we can HEAR your question, knowwhati'msayin', yo?!

                                        Hope Suarez moves up to challenge even tho I think the 115 belt will be hers this year. She the only other person I can see give a real challenge at 125 other than Joanna. Jessica Eye is tough tho but she gets hit too much to win this one. Andrade is to slow and the other girls are either too small or not skilled enough matchup wise.

                                                I agree. I think I've seen her lose more than win. Probably isn't luck. Polishing dana's lil' knob is my guess. Didn't she already get a title fight a while back??

                                                valentina shevchenko is better than nunes, than cyborg and holly holm, valentina has never been knocked out, the others have been, valentina never really won her in all her fights she lost because they were stolen, valentina she is the true female bantamweight champion and the most complete fighter in the history of the feminine mma and the most powerful fighter of all time. I LOVE YOU VALENTINA SHEVCHENKO for me you will always be the best fighter that ever existed. we go for this title defense and then we are going to beat him for the third time for the mafia to deliver the belt to the one

                                                Nunes is going to retire. She's def taking the $$$ and running. Remember either right before or after the cyborg match, she said something about being scouted by a soccer team...?? She knows the only way fo' he/r is face down on da mat.

                                                Stop smoking that dope! She beat her the second fight. Nunez laid on her to rest. As she got smacked from the bottom. I'll bet you any amount of money she doesn't put her to sleep or tko

                                                Highly unlikely because for one, Valentina moved down to flyweight, and two, she never abandons defense and trades with her opponent like Cyborg did against Nunes.
