Amanda Nunes should look out. Two of the toughest women in the UFC are now training together for their upcoming title fights. One of them is a former rival she barely got a win against, with a Split Decision Victory. The other one is her opponent for the upcoming Bantamweight title fight at UFC 232.

Ariel Helwani has revealed the first look of Cris Cyborg and Valentina Shevchenko training with each other in a facility built by the Bantamweight contender for this camp.

Cyborg is set to square off against Amanda Nunes on the 29th of December for the Women’s Bantamweight Title. Sharing a training facility with Valentina Shevchenko will help her no-end, as she has her own history with Nunes.

Shevchenko faced Nunes for the UFC Bantamweight Title back in September of 2017 and came really close to winning the title. She lost by Split Decision, but she can give tips to Cyborg ahead of her Title fight having faced the Champion twice. Cyborg remains undefeated other than her first professional fight, going into the title bout.

Meanwhile, Shevchenko will use the skills of Cyborg to prepare as well, as she gets ready for her UFC Flyweight Title fight at UFC 231 against Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Nunes will have to look out when she faces Cyborg, who is a fearsome contender under normal circumstances. After training with Shevchenko, she will only be more prepared for the upcoming fight.
