Valentina Shevchenko and Lauren Murphy will join UFC 266 as co-main event on September 25. While the title bout is important for both fighters, it is more important for Shevchenko as she will defend her Flyweight title.
However, Shevchenko won the title by defeating Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231. The 33-year-old Kyrgyzstani appeared in 24 fights in his 18 years of professional MMA career. And she lost only three of the fights. Of those three losses, Amanda Nunes defeated her twice.
Lauren Murphy defeated Joanne Calderwood at UFC 263. As a result, she got a nomination for the title fight. Murphy has been phenomenal in the last couple of years as she has five winning streaks and is looking to make it six by winning the Flyweight title. There is no doubt that Murphy will give all effort for this match as this is her first UFC title shot.
Murphy has a plus point that she is capable of winning a fight in any aspect. Nevertheless, she is a former world champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, so she will get the benefits from her grappling skill.
