UFC bantamweight Joselyne Edwards has fired back at Taila Santos for recent comments about Valentina Shevchenko.
Taila Santos recently went to the press accusing Valentina Shevchenko of being “scared” to rematch, as well as describing her as “no big deal”.
Edwards, a close friend and training partner to Valentina, caught wind of the comments and let her feelings be known in a message to Santos on WMMA Rankings Instagram page.
“Omg you don’t know what you’re saying!! 😂.” Edwards wrote.
Edwards feels a sense of loyalty to Valentina. During a recent chat with WMMA Rankings, Edwards opened up about how training with Valentina & her sister Antonina helped her find “confidence” as a fighter.
“Training with Valentina has been amazing. It has given me so much confidence in myself, to use my legs more during a fight as we train kicks a lot. But yeah I would say training with Valentina and Antonina has definitely given me confidence in my abilities to use more combinations and leg kicks.” she said.
Edwards’ work with the sisters has certainly been paying off. The ‘La Pantera’ seems to have found her groove in the UFC this year, going 2-0 with victories over Ramona Pascual and Ji Yeon Kim.
