Valentina Shevchenko has posted a new swimsuit photo for UFC fans in Idaho, as seen below.
UFC’s women are enjoying widespread popularity at the moment. At UFC 269, Julianna Peña shocked the world as she did the unthinkable and made Amanda Nunes tap out in the second round of their bantamweight title fight. Afterward, Julianna Peña paid a direct homage to Nate Diaz.
Amanda Nunes made headlines earlier this year when she revealed that she would be leaving American Top Team in Florida to pursue a more private training location. She is set to have a rematch against Julianna Peña at UFC 277 as well.
Nunes is barely taking time off as she works to reclaim the bantamweight title. While speaking during a recent interview with broadcaster Laura Sanko, Nunes admitted that she has rarely left camp ahead of UFC 277.
“I’m happy, I’m in a new place, too,” Nunes said. “To make everything easier, upstairs I have a place to rest. I don’t need to go back home — drive home then go back to the gym. When I’m done with my training in the morning, I stay in my studio. I have a very nice setup with a kitchen, and living room for rest, we have a pretty comfortable area in the gym to stay right after training then jumping into the next class. Everything to get better and stronger for the next fight.” (h/t Bloody Elbow)
