An exciting flyweight matchup is in the works for UFC’s upcoming Fight Night event on May 30.
The UFC Apex in Vegas is the rumored targeted location and venue for the event.
Chookagian attempted to dethrone flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 247 in February but was defeated via third-round TKO. “Blonde Fighter” is 4-2 since moving to the UFC flyweight division in 2018.
The elder Shevchenko sister, Antonina, bounced back from the first loss of her MMA career with a submission win over Lucie Pudilova in a “Fight of the Night.” She signed with the UFC in 2018 after earning a contract on the Contender Series.
