Valentina Shevchenko , like many fans, believes she did what it takes to defeat Amanda Nunes at UFC 215 and she should have won.
“I really don’t understand why the victory goes to the other side,” Shevchenko said. She then goes on to say
“For two takedowns in five rounds? She didn’t hit me with one punch. Nothing significant. Look at her face. Her nose is red from my punches. Why she is still (champion), I don’t understand.
“Even when I was on the ground, I kicked very hard from the ground position and I really don’t understand why (Nunes won).”
For her part, the champion believes she won rightly.
Valentina Shevchenko “I think he won the fourth round, but I won the others. I wanted to prove that I am the best. I think I’m going to take a break now, and I’ll fight again next year. I think my strategy worked. Let her do the work, and wait for the right moments to make a difference.”
“I think that she didn’t want to be in this fight. She didn’t hit this fight…not one punch. Just like these kicks, these are her kicks,” she said as she kicked the air lightly.
“I hit hard…I hit hard. This is the reason I hit hard,” she explained, pointing to the cut she suffered on her shin. “But this one?” she asked, again lightly kicking the air.
Shevchenko has assured her fans that she will win if given a third opportunity.
“I definitely will win this next fight. I won this fight and I totally disagree with this decision going to the other side. I disagree.”
