Valentina Shevchenko might only have one win in the UFC Women’s Flyweight division but she has already made huge plans for the future.

Shevchenko dominated in her last fight

Shevchenko defeated Priscila Cachoeira at UFC Fight Night 125 in a dominant fashion revealed that she wants to get her revenge against Amanda Nunes once she has won the Flyweight title. Shevchenko revealed the same during an interview with MMA Junkie.

“I know the last time with Amanda, I know exactly I didn’t lose this fight. Everybody knows this. My plan is to have a few fights at 125 for now, and then go back and have my revenge – and have my revenge with Amanda.” She said.

Currently holding a 15-3 record in her professional career, Shevchenko also talked about fighting in the flyweight division and how different it is when compared to fighting in the bantamweight division.

“In 135 fights, I was feeling (as strong), everything good. But the difference is the size of opponents. At 125, it’s the same size like me. I know it’s the same power. Maybe a little bit taller, but in general, same, same. But 135, it’s every time, you have to see the difference,” she said.

Nunes and Shevchenko have fought twice so far with Nunes winning both fights.
