Valentina Shevchenko Scores A Dominant Decision Win Over Liz Carmouche!

UFC Fight Night 156 is taking place tonight (Saturday, August 10, 2019) from inside Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The main event of the evening brings very interesting combat. The reigning defending 125-pound champion Valentina “The Bullet” Shevchenko squares off against dangerous BJJ black belt Liz “Girl-Rilla” Carmouche in a championship title war. The two already fought at C3 Fights: Red River Rivalry, on September 30, 2010, where Carmouche scored a second-round doctor’s stoppage. Can Valentina avenge the loss?

The referee in charge of this contest is Keith Peterson. The war kicks off!
