First reported by ESPN, the UFC flyweight championship will be on the line in November.
The “Bullet” will be looking to make her fourth flyweight title defense. Shevchenko was scheduled to face Joanne Calderwood in August, however, a leg injury forced the champion out of the bout.
With the champion’s status unknown at the time, Calderwood elected to take a fight with Brazil’s Jennifer Maia. Maia capitalized on a huge opportunity, submitting “JoJo” in the first round via arm bar to secure herself the title shot.
