Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko are two highly skilled mixed martial artists who have faced each other in the UFC on multiple occasions. Their fights have been intense and closely contested, showcasing their exceptional talents and creating a compelling rivalry.

Their first encounter took place on March 5, 2016, at UFC 196. However, this bout was contested in the bantamweight division, as Nunes was not yet the UFC women’s bantamweight champion. The fight went the distance, with Nunes earning a unanimous decision victory. It was a closely contested match, with Nunes showcasing her striking prowess and aggressive style, while Shevchenko displayed her technical skills and counter-striking ability.

Their second bout occurred on September 9, 2017, at UFC 215. This time, Nunes was the reigning UFC women’s bantamweight champion, and the fight served as the main event. Once again, the fight went to a decision, with Nunes winning a close split decision. Both fighters displayed their skills throughout the fight, but Nunes’ power and aggressive striking seemed to give her the edge, while Shevchenko showcased her resilience and ability to absorb punishment.

Their most recent meeting took place on December 8, 2018, at UFC 232. This time, the fight was a highly anticipated rematch for the UFC women’s bantamweight title. Nunes and Shevchenko competed in the co-main event as the fight was contested in the flyweight division. In a closely contested battle, Nunes once again emerged victorious, this time via unanimous decision. She showcased her striking power and aggression, while Shevchenko displayed her technical skills and counter-striking ability, making it a thrilling and closely contested fight.

It is worth noting that since their last meeting, Amanda Nunes has continued to dominate the UFC women’s bantamweight and featherweight divisions, defending her titles against top contenders. Valentina Shevchenko, on the other hand, moved back to the UFC women’s flyweight division and has since become the dominant champion in that weight class.

The fights between Amanda Nunes and Valentina Shevchenko have been closely contested battles, showcasing the skills and determination of both fighters. They have contributed to the development of their rivalry and have solidified both Nunes and Shevchenko as two of the best female fighters in the history of the sport.
