Top flyweight contender Katlyn Chookagian isn’t sure that former flyweight champion Nicco Montano will be back in the Octagon anytime soon following the events of UFC 228.
Last month at UFC 228, Montano was slated to face Valentina Shevchenko in her first title defense. Medical issued forced Montano to withdraw from the fight the day before and the belt was subsequently vacated.
Shevchenko, who will meet Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the vacant flyweight title belt at UFC 231 in Toronto, voiced that she did not think Montano would “ever fight again”.
Now, weeks out from 228, the number three ranked “Blonde Fighter” agrees with the “Bullet”. She also claimed via Twitter that Montano turned down a fight with her in December.
I agree… I don’t think she wants to fight at least not for a while 🙄 https://t.co/29ViRbuXnj
