Valentina Shevchenko left Singapore with a title, but it wasn’t just handed to her.

Perhaps one of the more overlooked fighters on the UFC 275 card, Taila Santos proved herself a worthy opponent when she took the long-reigning champion the distance. The fight was competitive throughout, though Santos’ best moments came in Round 1 through 3.

A head clash in Round 4 seemed to change the momentum of the bout and caused a broken orbital bone in Santos’ face. But Santos hung tough for the complete duration of the bout.

The scoring of the bout, which served as the co-main event, was highly-debated and discussed among fans and media members.

Between the clash of heads and the judges’ scoring, was Shevchenko lucky to walk away with the title?

Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Brian “Goze” Garcia, Matthew Wells, and Danny Segura broke it down with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia. Check out their discussion in the video above, and don’t miss the full episode below.
