In the C0-main event of UFC 231 last weekend, Valentina Shevchenko outpointed former UFC strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk in a five-round technical fight to become the new UFC flyweight champion.

The fight lacked a bit of firework, as both women were technical throughout the fight.  Valentina outsized Joanna and it was quite evident from the beginning. She outgrappled Joanna, outpointed her with size, attempted numerous takedown throughout the fight.

The dominant performance has earned Valentina Shevchenko a seal of approval from UFC featherweight champion Cris Cyborg. Ahead of the Dec. 29 showdown, Cyborg met with the media at her new gym in Los Angeles, where she talked about Shevchenko’s fight last weekend.

Valentina did really great, I knew she was going to win and I knew because she has a lot of experience, but Valentina looked like she was going to get Joanna anytime now.

I did training with her, she participated in my camp a little bit, she is very fast….she is really great man. She is an amazing fighter.

I think she’s going to continue being champ for a long time at this weight.
