Do you want to be a fu**ing fighter?
Valentina Shevchenko suffered a dislocated finger in the first round of her five-round war against Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) women’s Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes last night (Sat. Sept. 9, 2017) in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Despite the injury, “Bullet” toughed it out and continued to go a full 25 minutes against the champ. Perhaps what’s even more impressive, is that Valentina didn’t flinch when her trainers popped her finger back into place in between rounds as evidenced by the video footage above.
Despite her toughness, Shevchenko came up on the wrong end of a split-decision loss to “Lioness,” though it was obvious “Bullet” didn’t agree with the call. As a result, Shevchenko expressed her desire for an instant trilogy fight.
Whether or not she gets it remains to be seen, but one thing is certain, you won’t find too many people who would be opposed to it. Are you one of them?
