Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Women's Bantamweight Champion, Holly Holm will return to the Octagon TONIGHT (Sat., July 23, 2016) for a 135-pound showdown against Valentina Shevchenko at UFC on FOX 20, a network-televised event that will take place inside United Center in Chicago, Illinois.
Holm (10-1)has been itching to get back in the cage since her late-round submission loss to Miesha Tate at UFC 196. "Preacher's Daughter" controlled a majority of the bout and likely would have earned a decision if she didn't get strangled unconscious in the fifth and final round.
Shevchenko (12-2) most recently dropped a decision to newly-crowned bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes at UFC 196. "Bullet" has just one other appearance inside the Octagon, a split-decision win over Sarah Kaufman at UFC on FOX 17 back in Dec. 2015.
