Valentina Shevchenko put her women’s flyweight title on the line against Katlyn Chookagian in the co-headliner of tonight’s UFC 247 event.

Shevchenko (18-3 MMA) had gone a perfect 4-0 since dropping to flyweight entering tonight’s event. She captured the promotions 125lbs title at UFC 231 with a unanimous decision victory over Joanna Jedrzejczyk, and had since defended her strap against Jessica Eye (KO) and Liz Carmouche (decision).

Meanwhile, Katlyn Chookagian (13-2 MMA) had picked up an impressive unanimous decision victory over Jennifer Maia in her most previous effort at UFC 244 this past November. ‘Blonde Fighter’ entered tonight’s title fight sporting a 6-2 record inside the UFC.

Tonight’s UFC 247 co-headliner proved to be a one sided affair, as ‘The Golden Bullet’ dominated Chookagian both on their feet and on the ground on route to a third round TKO victory.
