UFC 238 will take place June 8th in the United Center in Chicago.
Those who like watching high-level females fight are totally hyped about the upcoming UFC 238.
Valentina Shevchenko will be making her first UFC flyweight title defense
Valentina Shevchenko (1.13) claimed the vacant title in December by winning a one-sided decision victory over former 115-pound champ Joanna Jedzrejczyk. Her only two losses in the UFC were to bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes. Shevchenko aims to be an active champion, so she is more than excited to fight soon.
Certainly, Shevchenko wants to keep a consistent fight schedule and live up to her words she expressed claiming the 125-pound strap two months ago. The athlete just wants to defend the title as much as she can instead of just sitting on the title.
Eye is ahead of potentially the biggest fight of her career
On the other hand, Jessica Eye (5.25) moved down a weight class in January 2018 after losing four straight fights under the UFC banner. The switch has completely turned her career around since the introduction of the UFC 125-pound division. She has won three combats in a row, defeating Kalindra Faria, Jessica-Rose Clark, and Katlyn Chookagian.
Eye is taking her remaining time until the fight to make sure she is in her best shape for the fight night. Actually, the fighter was offered a chance for combat against Shevchenko at UFC on February 21 in Prague. As the fighter was still recovering from a rough bout with Chookagian, she simply wasn’t able to take it.
Therefore, Eye decided to be cautious. Admittedly, she has lost a lot of teeth over the past couple of years, and she got medically suspended for some weeks. With the extra time, Eye is going to be 100 percent ready for fighting against Shevchenko and online sportsbooks in the US give her the credit.
Jessica Eye is ready to take her chance
Only a few know that Jessica was a shining star athlete in high school. However, at 16, a drunk driver plowed into Eye and her father. A broke back, among other injuries, and was bed-ridden for three months. This incident had a large role in driving Eye towards success in mixed martial arts.
As an amateur, Eye won five matches in total and became the first North American Allied Fight Series amateur women’s champion in 2009. As fans might know it by now, Jessica usually attacks with knees, elbows, and uppercuts when pressing an opponent against the cage.
No doubt, Shevchenko is one of the most versatile fighters of the present day. She is a great opponent and an excellent fighter. It is not going to be easy to beat her down. Nevertheless, Jessica Eye has what it takes to be the new champion. Draw (70.00) is not an option for any of the fighters.
