Valentina Shevchenko: Is winning the UFC belt or defending it tougher?

  • Published: 04 June 2019
  • UFC women's flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko takes a very workmanlike approach to her training and her career. So what is easier for her: winning the belt or defending it?
    That was a good question, as Shevchenko headed into her first title defense opposing Jessica Eye. Their bout serves as the UFC 238 co-main event to Henry Cejudo and Marlon Moraes' headlining title tilt for the vacant UFC bantamweight belt.
    UFC 238 takes place on Saturday, June 8, in Chicago.

        Valentina Champion has been in plenty of exciting fights. She beat Holly Holm to a pulp in an exciting fight. She pinned Juliana Pena's ears to the canvas in an exciting fight. Her first fight with Manny Nunes was an exciting fight. The second fight with Manny was boring but if Manny wasn't afraid to engage the counterstriker it would have been a swell fight, too.

            Defending it of course, which is why McPussy never even attempted it and which is why GSP, Jones, Silva and DJ are the GOATs and GSP himself has said it so case closed.

                    To those who say her defensive style of fighting is boring maybe there is a little truth to what you say but this is how she wins. Iv'e seen her go toe to toe with big Amanda and out strike her so she can box but why take the risk like Cyborg? It goes to show anyone can get into a striking match but you take the risk of an opponents lucky shot. Mayweather is also a defensive fighter to some degree but look where he's at. Valentiana will be successful because she's smart, in order to beat a smart fighter you have to be smarter, Nunes was just much bigger not smarter not better. Viva Val!

                      Its not defensive, its a slick counterstriking style. To counter Joanna's jab with a spinning back kick shows how good she is.
