Video: Watch Valentina Shevchenko's full media lunch interview ahead of UFC 231

LOS ANGELES – On Saturday, Valentina Shevchenko will take her second crack at a UFC title.

In September 2017, Shevchenko (15-3 MMA, 4-2 UFC) lost a close title fight to women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 215. After that, she made the drop to flyweight.

Saturday, she’ll take on former stawweight champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk (14-2 MMA, 9-2 UFC) for the vacant women’s flyweight title in the UFC 231 co-main event at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

Shevchenko and Jedrzejczyk have history fighting each other, just not in MMA. Shevchenko has three wins over Jedrzejczyk in muay Thai fights. Will that play a factor at UFC 231 when they fight under MMA rules?

This past week in Los Angeles, Shevchenko sat down with media members in Los Angeles to talk about her history with Jedrzejczyk, the fight at UFC 231, her move to flyweight, her UFC flyweight sister Antonina and much more.

Ahead of UFC 231, and before fight week kicks into high gear in Canada, check out the full media lunch with Shevchenko in the video above.
