The 31-year-old Shevchenko will reportedly take on Liz Carmouche, 35, at UFC Fight Night on Aug. 10. It will be Shevchenko’s second flyweight title defense.
The first came during a June 8 fight against Jessica Eye. Shevchenko wasted no time dispatching Eye in that one. Shevchenko won the fight just 26 seconds into the second round.
Shevchenko’s second title defense does come with at least one interesting storyline. Over her career as a mixed martial artist, Shevchenko has only lost three times. Two of those losses came against Amanda Nunes. The third came against Carmouche.
It’s been quite some time since the two squared off, though. Their first fight took place in 2010.
Shevchenko will be out to prove she’s gotten better with more experience.
