The Shevchenko sisters Valentina and Antonina discussed their plans post-fighting career in an interview with Brett Okamoto.
Valentina and Antonina Shevchenko have been a massive force in the UFC women’s flyweight division. And, Valentina especially has been unstoppable ever since she joined the UFC, destructing any opponent coming in her path.
Due to an extended kickboxing career, despite being 3 years elder to Valentina, Antonina joined the UFC only in 2018. She has fought five time since and her record currently stands at 3-2, with both the losses being closely fought decision losses.
Valentina, on the other hand, joined the UFC in 2015 and currently sits at the helm of the women’s flyweight division. She is currently on a 6 fight win streak and will be defending her title this weekend at UFC 261, against Jessica Andrade.
The Shevchenko sisters sat down with Brett Okamoto of ESPN, where they discussed a myriad of topics.
When asked about their future plans post-fighting career, Valentina revealed she wanted to be a part of the movie business, while Antonina expressed her desire to have a career in the aviation industry.
Valentina is already starring alongside veteran actress Halle Berry in her feature film directorial debut Bruised. It is expected to release soon, and Valentina will be playing the main antagonist in the film.
Bullet Valentina was quoted as saying:
“I would love to be a part of the movie business. I can’t wait for my movie with Halle Berry to release. I want to see how the movie’s turned out because I’m her main opponent in the movie. I just want to do more and more scenes like that because I had such a positive experience with Halle. She is such a good person, amazing person.”
Antonina then spoke about her interest in the aviation industry:
“Sooner or later I see my life in aviation as a pilot. And I would like to be a bush pilot flying over Alaska or an airline pilot.”
Rachael Ostovich backs Valentina Shevchenko to beat Jessica Andrade
Former UFC women’s flyweight Rachael Ostovich who was recently released by the UFC, believes Valentina will successfully defend her title for the 5th time when she takes on Jessica Andrade at UFC 261.
Speaking in an interview with Helen Yee, the Hawaiian seemed pretty confident when asked about Valentina’s chances.
Bullet Valentina will be going into the fight as an overwhelming favourite, and it would take a gargantuan effort from the Brazilian, Andrade to pull off a victory against the Kyrgyzstani.
