Valentina Shevchenko elevated herself to contender status and sent former champ Holly Holm back to the drawing board with a unanimous-decision victory in the UFC on FOX 20 main event on Saturday night at the United Center in Chicago. Holm and Shevchenko both entered the bout looking to get back on track. Holm was coming off of losing her bantamweight championship to Miesha Tate at UFC 196 in March. Shevchenko lost to current champion Amanda Nunes on that same fight card. Shevchenko started strong, landing a stiff jab and solid inside leg kicks, but Holm was the first to make an impact, dropping Shevchenko with a straight right hand about two minutes into the opening round.
