Valentina Shevchenko is scheduled to fight Joanne Calderwood at UFC 251. The fight will take place on June 6 and although UFC hasn’t released any details about the venue yet, it’s highly likely that the venue will be Australia.

The news was first reported by Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

Breaking: Valentina Shevchenko’s (@BullettValentina) next title defense will come against Joanne Calderwood (@DRkneevil) at UFC 251 on June 6. Both sides have agreed to the fight, per sources,” Okamoto tweeted.

Joanne Calderwood is coming off of a split decision win over Andrea Lee at UFC 242 last September. Before that, she lost to Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 238.

On the other hand, Valentina Shevchenko is coming off of a crushing TKO win over Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 247 earlier this month. Prior to that, she defeated Liz Carmouche at UFC Fight Night 156.

Valentina Shevchenko has now won five straight fights inside the Octagon. Although it seems like she is running out of competition in the flyweight division, she said that the weight class still has talent.

I feel amazing,” Shevchenko said backstage following her victory at UFC 247 co-main event at the Toyota Center (via – MMA Junkie). “It’s not only because of the performance, but the past couple of months was also a lot of work – a lot of hard training, mental pressure, physical pressure, and everything. When you end the fight with the fight result you expected, it’s the best feeling that you ever can feel.”

We just watched the rankings of flyweight with Laura Sanko, and it was after Katlyn (Chookagain) (and) Jessica Eye. It was Joanne Calderwood, Jennifer Maia, and Roxanne Modafferi,” Shevchenko said. “These three girls I think are strong fighters. They have very good skills. Each one, they have different styles of fighting. I would love to fight any one of them.”

UFC 251 will possibly feature a rematch between Max Holloway and UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski.
