UFC Fight Night 103 results: Julianna Pena vs. Valentina Shevchenko
UFC Fight Night Denver, which wass headlined by the five round women’s bantamweight fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Julianna Pena, aired live on FOX from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado on Saturday, Jan. 28 at 8m ET / 5pm PT.
The winner of the fight would likely earn a title shot against current champion Amanda Nunes. It was Shevchenko who would get her hand raised after submitting Pena via armar in the second round. Shevchenko went into the fight as the number one ranked women’s bantamweight, while Pena was seated at number two.
Champion Amanda Nunes was in the crowd to witness the fight. Nunes is the only fighter to hold a win over Shevchenko and now the rematch will likely be set up.
Also, we have a new contender in the welterweight division as Jorge Masvidal took out the surging Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone via TKO in the evening’s co-main event.
Six prelim bouts aired live on FS1 starting at 5pm ET / 2pm PT. Two fights kicked off the night of action on UFC FIGHT PASS starting at 4 pm ET/1 pm PT.
