Valentina Shevchenko vs. Jennifer Maia took place in a women’s title bout at the UFC 255 pay-per-view event on Saturday night at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.
This was a really interesting fight considering that Shevchenko and Maia wanted this fight to go to the ground. Shevchenko got a takedown in round one while she failed in the second frame and Maia was on top for the whole round. The whole story of this fight was who could get a takedown and in top position first.
Shevchenko got the decision win to retain the flyweight title after a dominating performance including the decision to out grapple her early then outstrike her late.
