UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko admitted that she does not feel sympathy for her former rival, Brazilian Amanda Nunes, who owns titles in two weight classes at once.
“I do not know. I don’t think she’s better than anyone. Well yes. Well, the winning streak, so what? “- said Valentina Shevchenko in an interview with” Sport-Express. -” I will not wait for words of admiration for Amanda. This is my rival. This is a person who is unsympathetic to me. Therefore, I will not say any lofty words about her. Her behavior at some point was inadequate. Why should I be good to her? “
At the same time, Shevchenko believes that her third fight with Amanda Nunes is only a matter of time:
“I think he will still be there sooner or later. If everything continues as it is now, she will continue to win in her weight class, and I in mine – this [fight with Amanda Nunes] is what will be.”
Recall that the Brazilian managed to win two victories over Valentina Shevchenko: in 2016 by unanimous decision of the judges, in 2017 – by split.
