Valentina Shevchenko seems to be in great shape as she decided to shadow box ahead of UFC 255
Valentina “The Bullet” Shevchenko puts her UFC Flyweight title on the line at UFC 255.
The Bullet takes on Jennifer Maia at the event and she is the favourite to keep hold of her gold. Shevchenko is regarded as one of the greatest MMA talents of all-time and has only lost to Amanda Nunes in the UFC.
Shevchenko is on a five-fight win streak since her last loss to Nunes and is confident of keeping the Flyweight title for a long time.
The 32-year-old is known for sharing videos and pictures of some scenic locations in the US. She was also on a similar road trip a while back but she is training for her upcoming clash.
Shevchenko was in Las Vegas and in a stunning shot she was shadow boxing and showing off her skills. The 32-year-old plugged in some sponsors too but she looks to be in ideal shape for another title defence.

Shevchenko looking to dominate
The 32-year-old is 19-3 in her MMA career and the only other person to defeat her has been Liz Carmouche. However, she got the win back in the UFC in 2019. Maia, for her part, has an MMA record of 18 wins, six losses and one draw.
The 32-year-old last defeated Joanne Calderwood in her previous outing and it will be interesting to see how this fight goes.
Shevchenko should be the favourite to keep her crown but anything is possible in MMA. Maia is a former Flyweight champion from Invicta but she is yet to win gold in the UFC.
UFC 255 will be held at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas with Deiveson Figueiredo also defending his Men’s Flyweight title against Alex Perez.
