Valentina Shevchenko came into her UFC 247 co-main event 14-1 on and
by the end there was little doubt why.

The women’s flyweight champion put on a clinic to dispatch Katlyn
Chookagian via TKO in the third round at Toyota Centre in Houston,
Texas, racking her impressive record up to 19-3 with three successful
title defences.

The 31-year-old continues to dominate her division and is seemingly
running out of challengers, with bantamweight and featherweight Amana
Nunes the only women to beat her in the Octagon.

“I feel there is a lot of talented, very good girls in 125
division,” Shevchenko told Joe Rogan in her post-fight interview.
“I still have to fight them, but I’m open for anything, any fight
to come in the future.”

Shevchenko and Chookagian felt each other out in cautious early
exchanges before the champion took the challenger down late in the
first round. “Bullet” then sliced the American open on the side of
the face in the dying seconds with a brutal elbow from in full guard.

The Kyrgyzstani began to find her rhythm and her range with her
striking in the second round, particularly her head kicks, and took
Chookagian down again, dominating with top pressure.

It didn’t go much further than that, with Shevchenko quickly taking
crucifix position and ending it with punches and elbows at 1:03 of the
third round, Chookagian unable to defend the strikes with her arms
locked up.

“Actually, I expected a ground KO,” added Shevchenko, who began
her US fighting career in Houston with the Legacy Fighting
Championship promotion in 2015, living in the city for two years.

 “It’s the best feeling I can feel right now, it’s entire
happiness,” she said.
