Valentina Shevchenko scored a stunning knockout finish over Jessica Eye in the co-main event of UFC 238 in Chicago, Illinois to retain the women’s flyweight championship. Shevchenko unleashed a high left kick that landed directly on the button and knocked Eye out cold.
The end result was one of the most brutal knockouts inside of the Octagon that we have seen in the women’s division.
Eye remained on the mats for minutes before she returned to her feet and was helped out of the cage.
