UFC chief Dana White discussed organizing a fight between female flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko and former 115-pound titleholder Jessica Andrade.
Recall that the fight between Shevchenko and Andrade will take place on April 24th as part of the UFC 261.
“I really like the fight between Valentina and Andrade. And that Jessica will trample on her. She will go forward, she will put pressure, and she will make it a crazy, bright and interesting confrontation. As for Valentina Shevchenko, she is now in the same position , which Anderson Silva was once in. All people think, “Oh, she has no one to fight in the division. She dominates all opponents … “
But Jessica showed up and people were like, “Oooh!” If Valentina comes out and dominates Jessica like everyone else, it will once again solidify her legacy and be another achievement in the sport, “Dana White told BT Sport.
