There are been no match for them in their respective weight classes. This coupled with the fact that both fighters have fought each other twice in an extremely close fight makes the trilogy inevitable.
Valentina Shevchenko and Amanda Nunes fought each other for the first time at UFC 196. In that fight, Nunes managed to beat Shevchenko via a unanimous decision. The pair then collided again at UFC 215. The rematch was even closer than the first fight and Amanda Nunes again managed to defeat Valentina Shevchenko via split decision.
Since then both pairs have gone a separate route to establish their dominance in different weight classes.
Valentina Shevchenko vs Amanda Nunes 3?
Now in an interview with MMAFighting.com, Shevchenko has expressed an interest in a trilogy fight with Nunes and she expects the fight to happen one day.
“I just feel it’s going to happen,” Shevchenko said following her win at UFC 261. “Without putting all this pressure to someone, Ok, let’s do it now. It’s like everything good in a good time. That’s why it’s going to happen, I know for sure. Probably when time is perfect time for this fight. It’s going to happen. It’s like I cannot force someone like OK, let’s go fight me. If someone don’t want to fight, to have this fight, no one can force no one.
“Why I’m feeling like I’m not rushing or doing much of this stuff, I just feel it’s going to happen without extra power. Because as I say every time, if we continue successfully in our own weight class divisions, it’s going to be just only one fight that makes sense.” (H/T – MMAfighting)
