This weekend from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, we’ve got the opportunity to witness none but two UFC domain fights which have been in the making for quite some time.
From the co-main event, for Bantamweight title challenger Valentina Shevchenko squares off contrary former multiple time Strawweight women’s winner, Joanna Jedrzyczyk for the new and empty women’s 125 lb Flyweight world title strap.
These two women have a friendly rivalry that dates back for their amateur fighting days in the European Muay Thai Championships. Valentina managed to come out on top each battle, albeit with more experience each time and she is the bigger fighter.
More on the size difference afterwards.
The main occasion may feature the most anticipated fight of 2018! I understand that the announcement, however, think about it. Minus Conor vs Khabib, there is not a fight I was hyped for than this one all year.
Jon Jones’s return will, definitely, be pretty awesome but this is the next time these two guys have gone through a complete battle camp in preparation for their struggle. The first time around, Max Holloway was hauled out of the contest at the last minute by the athletic commission for weight cutting issues.
Most fans and media are still speculating as to what had Max sounding so punchy and slurred in interviews preceding that potential first fight w Ortega back on July 4th of this year.
