Heading into UFC Uruguay, reigning flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko was on a mission to avenge her 2010 loss to Liz Carmouche.
Not only did she defend her title, but she did so in incredibly dominant fashion as she stifled everything Carmouche threw at her en route to an easy 50-45 decision across the board.
This performance marked “The Bullet’s” second defense of her 125-pound crown after previously knocking out Jessica Eye at UFC 238 in June. For Carmocuhe, this setback snapped her two fight win streak.
Check out the reaction to Shevchenko’s victory below, plus the best of the rest from an action-packed card inside Antel Arena.
Valentina Shevchenko vs. Liz Carmouche

I bet 4 strikes landed in that 1st— Chas Skelly (@ChasSkelly) August 11, 2019
Must be nice to make title fight money and not even have to deal with a threat , just coast 5 rounds to safe victory and get paid. #blessed— Brian Kelleher (@brianboom135) August 11, 2019
Can’t say that fight was thrilling. Shevchenko did what she needed to do to safely secure the belt, but man so conservative and carmouche just couldn’t find her range— Sarah Kaufman (@mmasarah) August 11, 2019

I imagine Mike Perry grew up in a trailer park located in outer space. He is my favorite. #UFCUraguay— Matt Schnell (@DANGER_Caged) August 11, 2019
