Kim (8-1-2) makes her fourth appearance for the UFC and looks to build on a two-fight win streak in which she has picked up split decision victories over Justine Kish and Melinda Fabian. The 29-year-old, also known as ‘Fire Fist’, trains out of the MOB Training Center in Seoul, South Korea.

Shevchenko (6-0-0) makes her first appearance for the promotion after knocking out Jaimee Nievera in the first-round of their June Dana White Contender Series encounter to earn herself a UFC contract. The undefeated 34-year-old, also known as ‘The Panther’, is a highly-touted prospect thanks to her success in the sport of Muay Thai in which she has captured several world titles. She is the older sister of fellow flyweight contender, Valentina Shevchenko.

  1. nice, Antonina vs the division’s other dark horse prospect who needs better training. like both these two, hope it’ll be a great fight.

    1. Personally, I think Kim is out of her league taking on Shevchenko. Like you, I’m hoping for a great fight, but realistically I think it will be pretty one sided.

      1. yep, Kim is way too raw. she got boxed up nicely. great chin though. I don’t usually say this, but this is one fighter i hope moves to one of those “top” gyms for a couple of years.
