As seen at the UFC 247 pay-per-view event on Saturday night from Houston, Texas, Valentina Shevchenko successfully retained the UFC women’s flyweight title over Katlyn Chookagian.
UFC president Dana White told ESPN’s Marc Raimondi during the post-fight press conference how much he respects the champ.
“Absolutely,” White said (H/T to BJPENN.com). “She’s so awesome. She’s such a professional and such a good human being on top of it but at the end of the day man, she’s a gangster. That woman is an absolute gangster. When you got a gun tattooed on your hip, you are somebody not to be f*cked with. She’s so impressive and she looked so good tonight and I look forward to seeing her next fight.”
