Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko VS Julianna “The Venezuelan Vixen” Peña

UFC Fight Night Predictions

Valentina “Bullet” Shevchenko UFC Fight Night

Julianna fought against Jessica Rakoczy to leave the octagon as the original winner of the Women’s Ultimate Fighter. In that fight, Julianna was able to take Rakoczy down early and showed decent ground control. Rakoczy got out, but she got taken down again. Julianna was aggressive to a fault. She didn’t carry herself calmly and therefore wasted a lot of energy in aggression.

On the second take down, Peña was able to take a full mount and went into slaughter mode. Rakocy was tough… but she didn’t have the ground defense to she needed to win.

Peña then won in unanimous decision in her next three bouts agains Milana Dudieva, Jessica Eye and Cat Zingano.

Shevchenko is competent on the ground, but she will want to keep the fight on her feet. Shevchenko is a kick boxer and a dancer.

My money is on Peña. I think she will win in a unanimous decision by controlling the fight on the ground. The only risk is that Shevchenko will connect with her spinning back kick, but that’s unlikely.
