Valentina Shevchenko vs Taila Santos Predictions & Tips


Valentina Shevchenko is backed to retain her title at UFC 275.

Shevchenko has dominated the flyweight division and has been racking up stoppage wins recently.

She is levels above anybody Taila Santos has fought before, and ‘Bullet’ is backed to confirm that.

  • Valentina Shevchenko is on an 8-fight win streak
  • Valentina Shevchenko is 8-0 at flyweight in the UFC
  • Valentina Shevchenko has won 4 of her last 6 fights by KO/TKO

Valentina Shevchenko Form


Valentina Shevchenko has established herself as queen of the flyweights with an eight-fight win streak.

‘Bullet’ returned to the division in 2018 after a failed attempt to unseat then bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, and she has not looked back since.

She earned ‘Performance of the Night’ honors as she submitted Priscila Cachoeira in her return to the weight class.

That was followed by a unanimous decision win over Joanna Jedrzejczyk to win the vacant title.

She knocked out Jessica Eye with a head kick in her first defence of the crown and then bested Liz Carmouche over five rounds.

Shevchenko made it five wins in a row when she stopped Katlyn Chookagian in the third round, and made it six straight when she claimed a decision win against Jennifer Maia.

She has not gone the distance since then, however, winning both of her 2021 outings by TKO.

The 34-year-old Russian stopped Jessica Andrade in the second round and then finished Lauren Murphy in the fourth to retain her title.

Shevchenko now has a professional record of 22-3 with eight wins coming by KO/TKO and seven by submission.

Of her three career defeats, only one has come by stoppage and that was a doctor stoppage back in 2010.

Taila Santos Form


Taila Santos has rebounded from a UFC debut defeat to charge into flyweight title contention.

Santos earned a contract when she made a successful appearance on Dana White’s Contender Series in August 2018.

However, her first outing in the Octagon ended in a disappointment as he dropped a split decision to Mara Romero Borella.

The 28-year-old Brazilian has bounced back from that setback though, winning four consecutive fights.

She started her streak with a unanimous decision win over Molly McCann, and then made it back-to-back wins as the judges gave her the nod after three rounds with Gillian Robertson.

A third decision victory followed in September 2021, when Santos outpointed Roxanne Modafferi.

The Brazilian then finally ended her wait for a stoppage win in the UFC last November, when she submitted Joanne Wood in the first round.

That victory took her professional record to 19-1, with 10 wins coming via knockout and three by submission.
