Valentina Shevchenko Wiki Update Wiki

Valentina Shevchenko was born March 7th 1988 to a fighting family in Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan. Her older sister is multiple time Kickboxing and Muay Thai world champion Antonina Shevchenko and her mother is Elena Shevchenko, a 3rd degree Black Belt in Taekwondo and President of the Federation of Thai Boxing in Kyrgyzstan. Since beginning her martial arts career at the age of 5 Shevchenko has excelled in virtually every discipline she has attempted.

Boasting a staggering 55-1 combined record across Muay Thai and Kickboxing disciplines Shevchenko also dipped her toe into boxing chalking up a pair of professional victories in her adopted Peru. Her MMA career began at the age of just 15 submitting Mi Choi Kim in the first round at a WXF event in South Korea. Following this Shevchenko took K-1 and Savate bouts in Russia before returning to MMA and earning her 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th first round submission victories at events in Kazakhstan, Russia and South Korea once more.  At 5-0 Shevchenko switched focus to collecting IFMA Muay Thai world titles but after a 4 year absence returned to MMA and made her American debut under the C3 Fight banner.


Her return to MMA saw her face her only defeat to date losing by TKO (retirement) to future UFC title contender Liz Carmouche. Licking her wounds as a mixed martial artist for the first time Shevchenko returned to happier hunting grounds in Seoul by defeating Kazakh debutant Akjarkyn Baiturbaeva by decision. With the ship righted Shevchenko took another hiatus from MMA, decamping in Lima, Peru where she would collect her boxing scalps, World Combat Games Gold, and a veritable myriad of continental and world Muay Thai and K-1 titles.


After three and a half years way from MMA Shevchenko made yet another return, this time balancing kickboxing demands with a professional MMA career TKO'ing Ecuadors' Priscilla Orellana and Brazil's Hellen Bastos for Fusion FC in Peru and then taking the biggest MMA scalp of her fledgling career, taking a decision victory over Jan Finney for Legacy FC.


Bigger challenges await the devastating striker and cancelled bouts for Legacy FC against Carina Damm and Kalindra Faria have curtailed her progress but it is undeniable that Legacy FC may have a future star on their hands.
