UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko was complimentary to the promotion’s first-ever dual-division women’s champion Amanda Nunes in her upcoming bantamweight title defense against Holly Holm, but also had a message for her as she feels they have “unfinished business.”
Shevchenko lost a unanimous decision to Nunes in a battle for the bantamweight belt at UFC 196 in March of 2016. She’d certainly love to run that one back and avenge the loss, but she is currently preparing for her flyweight title defense against Jessica Eye at UFC 238, which takes place on Saturday in Chicago.
