The UFC announced that the Women’s Flyweight Champion Nicco Montano will defend her Title against former Bantamweight contender Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 228.

Montano was crowned the first ever Women’s Flyweight Champion in late 2017, after the weight class was brought to life during season 26 of The Ultimate Fighter. However, she has since been sidelined due to injuries and hasn’t yet defended her belt.

Valentina Shevchenko lost a highly controversial decision to Bantamweight queen Amanda Nunes at UFC 215, before deciding to step down a weight class to try her hand there.
