In a recent interview with TMZSports, Shevchenko said, “I think if destiny puts this fight in front of us most. Yes, we gonna do it. I’m kind of focused very much on my flyweight division.”

She added, “And I just want to be better and better and fight and fight. And definitely, when it’s gonna happen, I’m here.”

This trilogy fight will surely excite the combat fans as both the fighters have already clashed against each other twice inside the octagon. Even though Shevchenko has lost both the fights against Nunes, many people believe it was a tough fight.

Many fans say it was a controversial decision. Hence, a trilogy fight might gain a lot of attention from the MMA community. The ‘Bullet’ might also avenge her losses with a win over the Nunes.
