MMA: UFC Fight Night-Belem-Shevchenko vs Cachoeira
Valentina Shevchenko’s flyweight debut was an impressive one.

Lyoto Machida ain’t done yet and Nicco Montano’s days with the UFC women’s flyweight belt may soon be numbered.

Those were the two major takeaways from UFC Belem on Saturday night, as Machida staved off retirement talk with a hard-fought decision over Eryk Anders and Valentina Shevchenko announced her arrival to the 125-pound division in thunderous fashion, scoring a bloody, horror movie-esque victory over Priscila Cachoeira.

Check out reaction to those performances below, plus the best of the rest from a busy main card at UFC Belem.
