Conor McGregor is all praise for Valentina Shevchenko after her dominant win against Lauren Murphy at UFC 266.
McGregor praised Shevchenko through his tweet after she successfully defended her UFC women’s flyweight title against Lauren Murphy. ‘The Notorious’ wrote:
“Great night of fights. Valentina you are tremendous!”
Valentina Shevchenko successfully defended her UFC women’s flyweight title for the sixth time in the co-main event of UFC 266.
The Kyrgyzstani fighter was dominant throughout. ‘Bullet’ outworked Murphy through her striking, ground game, leg kicks and vicious counter shots.
Shevchenko outclassed ‘Lucky’ in their bout and finished her in the fourth round.
The 33-year-old has now won her last eight fights and is rightly considered one of the most dominant female fighters in MMA.
Shevchenko has now consecutively won seven championship bouts and has maintained her undefeated record in the 125-pounds division.
Lauren Murphy was unable to handle the pace and pressure that Shevchenko put on her in each round. Shevchenko ended Murphy’s five-fight winning streak.
UFC 266 also saw a featherweight title fight between Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega. The card also boasted a non-title, five-round fight between the returning Nick Diaz and former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler.
