BREAKING: Valentina Shevchenko vs Sijara Eubanks targeted for UFC 230

It looks like UFC 230 may finally have a main event. 

Per multiple sources, Valentina Shevchenko will face Sijara Eubanks for the vacant flyweight championship.

Shevchenko was scheduled to face former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231 in the co-main event, however, due to UFC 230 at MSG in New York not having a main event, the promotion has decided to shift the flyweight title fight to their November card.

The date change equals an opponent change for Shevchenko, who was supposed to face then-champ Nicco Montaño at UFC 228. She will now reportedly face Sijara Eubanks.

Brett Okamoto of ESPN led the reports.

  1. pathetic main event. Valentina really gonna sign to fight another girl with 5 fights that missed weight? the fact that the UFC would even book this is questionable. Nicco had the belt, what is the excuse for booking this other newbie fighter?
