Mixed martial arts fighter Valentina Shevchenko said after her rematch fight with reigning UFC women's flyweight champion Alexa Grasso that she is not thinking about ending her professional career:
With this performance tonight, I showed I have much more forward to go. This is kind of like no stop, no less power that I have, no less motivation. It’s kind of like no matter how old I am, I’m feeling great. I’m happy that martial arts is my lifestyle. I’m going to do that before I lose this motivation. Hopefully, I’m going to feel that for a long time.
Shevchenko came out to fight Grasso this September at UFC Fight Night 227. This confrontation lasted the entire distance and ended in a draw by split decision of the judges. She has 22 wins, four losses and one draw in mixed martial arts.
