What is next for flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko?

Being an incredibly dominant champion such as Valentina Shevchenko has a fair share of advantages and disadvantages. Since joining the UFC in 2015, ‘Bullet’ has lost only twice. Both losses have been at the hands of the consensus greatest female fighter of all time in Amanda Nunes. Therefore, Shevchenko makes an excellent case for being one of the best female fighters to have ever stepped foot in a UFC octagon. 

Since winning the flyweight belt, the younger Shevchenko sister has defended it five times. Three of these defenses have been stoppage wins and the other two have been wide unanimous decision wins. Therefore, it is no surprise that the UFC is finding it difficult to find Shevchenko a worthy opponent. However, given that the UFC is perhaps the most talent stacked MMA organization in the world, there is never a shortage of challenges, especially when you’re a champion.

 Lauren Murphy sits at #3 in the flyweight rankings. She extended her win streak to 5-0 at UFC 261 by securing a split decision win over Joanne Calderwood. Therefore, the common consensus is that she will be next for the flyweight queen. Given that both women recently competed, a fight between them would take place at the tail-end of this year. 

What do you make of Valentina Shevchenko’s title reign so far? And who do you think should be next for the flyweight champion? Has she begun practicing her dance for her next celebration in the UFC?
