This is the UFC 275 live blog for Valentina Shevchenko vs. Taila Santos, the flyweight title fight on Saturday in Singapore.

Shevchenko is currently the top-ranked pound-for-pound female fighter in the world and arguably the best fighter in the world, period. The flyweight champion has had a stranglehold on the 125-pound division for four years, defending her title six times. A win tonight will give Shevchenko the record for most title defenses by a female UFC champion in a single division and move her into a tie for fifth all-time for title defenses, behind only the likes of Demetrious Johnson, Jon Jones, Anderson Silva, and Georges St-Pierre.

Santos is looking to ruin those records for Shevchenko. The 28-year old Brazilian is 19-1 in her MMA career and currently riding a four-fight winning streak in the UFC, but to claim UFC gold tonight, she will have to author one of the biggest upsets in MMA history.
