LOOK: Antonina Shevchenko Shows Off Post-UFC on ESPN 9 Damage

UFC on ESPN 9 took place over the weekend at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. Antonina Shevchenko, who is the sister of UFC women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, headlined the preliminary card on ESPN in a bout against former title challenger Katlyn Chookagian.

During their bout, Shevchenko was battered for five rounds as Chookagian pulled away with a dominant victory — 30-25 on all of the judge’s scorecards.

Following the bout, Shevchenko took to social media to show off the damage she sustained during the loss. Needless to say, it isn’t pretty with bruises and cuts all over her face.

“MMA is a tough sport, but it’s my destiny and I will come back stronger,” Shevchenko wrote. 

So just how bad was the damage?
