    First Holly Holm and now Julianna Peña? Come on man Valentina Shevchenko already beat those girls easily and Valentina is way smaller.

    Those Nunes's divisions suck, 145 is a joke, they don't even have enough girls to make a top 5 there, and the 135lbs division hasn't improved at all, they have the same top 3 girls than 5 years ago. And the ones fighting for the title are girls that Valentina already beat, and Valentina is a 125lbs girl.

    What a joke! It's like one small girl (Valentina from 125lbs) is better than a whole upper division (135lbs).

    Valentina finished Julianna Peña like in the first round or something like that and she's the one fighting for the belt next at the 135lbs division. The last challenger was who? Holly Holm who Valentina have already beat for the record.

    They should cut 145 and let's see what happens with 135, those divisions hasn't improved in a while.

    It's because she's beat everyone and ran them out the company (cyborg) or the division (Valentina)

    Valentina isn't in the division because she's undersized at 135

    I think Shevchenko will hand Nunes a big fat loss one day real soon, boys.

    I think the trilogy fight will go a lot different and have Bullet winning, which in my book would be 2-1 Valentina

    Nevermind the fact that Val just defended against someone that Rose, Weili, and Joanna have all beaten.

    The fact is that they've both run out of contenders because they're so much better than the competition at this point.

    Nunes beat this woman out of the division.

    Shevchenko is the female Gustafsson. Her best fights are losses.

    It would likely be a five round fight.

    That's called completely cleaning out a division, it's supposed to be a good thing. But as usual with Valentina's fans, anything that Nunes does is wrong and bad.

    Just think if Valentina could beat Amanda, she would get those easy fights as well.

    Nope, she would have stayed if she became champ.
    They created the division as soon as she lost... AGAIN lmao

    135 and 145 champ who has a first round stoppage victory over every other 135 and 145 champ in UFC history. But somehow we are supposed to ignore that because she's a 135er who beat a 125er, and that 125er is the only fighter in the UFC allowed to beat smaller people.

    Nunes beats Shevchenko twice : unfair! Doesn't count!
    Shevchenko beats Joanna and Andrade : wow, so legit! Female GOAT!

    Oh, fucking shut up already.

    If Val was better than the whole 135 division she'd be the champ there. She lost to Nunes, twice, so she isn't.

    And no, Val didn't finish Pena in the first round. She subbed her at the end of the 2nd round, in a fight she had been losing. Pena was controlling her very easily in the clinch.

    Nunes finished Holly. Val just took her to a decision.

    And who gives a shit if Nunes is defending against girls Val beat? Who are the top fighters in Val's division? Maia? Murphy? Chook? lol. She was set to defend the belt against fucking Calderwood of all people. Val earned her shot at the belt by beating up a former crack addict who had beaten mostly girls with losing records. Then she won the belt against Joanna, a fattened up SW. Incredible stuff.

    I love Valentina, but you weird nuthuggers of hers need to get over the fact that she's always going to be remembered as 2nd best unless she finally beats Nunes.

    How, though, when they both fought each other twice at the same weight and Val lost both times?
