Valentina Shevchenko: Amanda Nunes rematch will ‘happen sometime’

Valentina Shevchenko :

“I started to fight in UFC in bantamweight, (and) it’s not my natural weight class,” Shevchenko said. “For example, my walk weight is 135, bantamweight. For 125, I’m not cutting at all, so it’s my perfect, natural weight class, and I’m so happy that the UFC has this weight class where I can feel natural. I can do everything what I’m doing right now. That’s why I just want to continue defending my belt, but I’m not discarding any opportunities in the future.

“As I say before the fight, this fight with Amanda, it’s something beyond what she wants, I want. It’s not there anymore. It’s just gonna happen sometime. I don’t know when. I’m not saying, okay, tomorrow – no, probably not. But it’s going to happen sometime, and when it happens I will be ready.”
