Are we letting this fight go ahead?
Valentina Shevchenko (21-3) is on such another level to Lauren Murphy (15-4) that it almost makes this fight too dangerous. The Kyrgyzstani-Peruvian fighter will make the sixth defence of the UFC flyweight belt she won from Joanna Jedrzejczyk in December 2018. She stopped Jessica Andrade in two rounds in her most recent bout last April.
Full credit to Murphy, who is seemingly one of the nicest individual’s in the entire sport and has won her last five in a row to earn this title shot. The American defeated Joanne Calderwood via split decision in her last fight back in June.
But she is completely outclassed in every facet of MMA in this fight.
