UFC 275: Valentina Shevchenko vs Taila Santos Purse, Payouts, Salaries: How Much Will the Fighters Make?

UFC Women’s Flyweight Champion Valentina Shevchenko is set to defend her belt for the sixth time, as she takes on Brazil’s Talia Santos at UFC 275 in Singapore.

Shevchenko is considered by many as not only the greatest flyweight of all time, but also as the GOAT of women’s MMA. The Kyrgyzstan native has bulldozed through every challenger in her path, and will be looking to add yet another name to the list of victims. 

Talia Santos, on the other hand, is a relative newcomer to the UFC. She has an outstanding record of 19-1 in her MMA career, and many her touting the Brazilian as Shevchenko’s toughest test yet.  Santos too has a very tough task on her hands as he aims to dethrone the near-invincible Shevchenko.
