First reported by My MMA News, a flyweight match-up between “The Happy Warrior” Roxanne Modafferi and Antonina “La Pantera” Shevchenko is in the works for an April event in St. Petersburg, Russia.
Modafferi (22-15), a top ten ranked flyweight talent, will look to bounce back from a decision loss to Sijara Eubanks. She is a veteran of the UFC and Invicta, and is also the first woman to appear on two seasons of The Ultimate Fighter.
Shevchenko (7-0) will look to remain unbeaten in MMA. After punching her way to a contract on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, the older Shevchenko made a victorious UFC debut versus Ji Yeon Kim in December.
This bout is not yet confirmed.
Who would you root for?
