Dana White’s Tuesday night Contender Series Week 3 wrapped off with two more fighters getting the contract.

One of them being heavy favourite and former women’s bantamweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko’s sister, Antonina Shevchenko. Shevchenko won the fight via second round TKO courtesy of barrage of knees. She will join her younger sister Valentina in the promotion, making them the first sister duo in UFC history.

“We were training so hard for this fight to have this opportunity to sign with the UFC,” Shevchenko said. “I’m glad to get this win. I saw she didn’t want the Thai clinch (in the first round), so in the second round I knew what to do.”
