On September 25 at the UFC266 event, The American, Lauren Murphy and the Kyrgyz-Peruvian, Valentina Shevchenko faced each other one of the most anticipated matches of the year, in the end it was a resounding victory on the part of Valentina, who wins by technical knockout in the fourth round and thus achieved the UFC world title of bantamweight.

Already days after the fight Murphy has given his impressions about the fight and about his opponent, who he has classified as one of the most dominant competitors in mixed martial arts today, “It’s a shame to lose, and it is the first time that I think it was a good save, I was quite out of combat when the referee took it off me. Definitely not the result we wanted, but to be honest, it was very good to be there with a martial artist from its caliber, it’s a very good experience. That must be what it feels like to go play one-on-one with Michael Jordan, or that’s what the guys felt when they were competing with Khabib (Nurmagomedov), because it really was, ‘Oh fuck, this girl is really on another level.’

The future of the new champion is uncertain, because so far there are no negotiations for her next lawsuit.
