UFC on ESPN+ 14: Valentina Shevchenko decisions Liz Carmouche
UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko (18-3-0) carefully outpointed Liz Carmouche (13-7-0) over five rounds to take a comfortable unanimous decision victory in the main event of UFC on ESPN+ 14 in Montevideo Saturday night. Shevchenko used her arsenal of kicks and strikes to pile up the points on Carmouche, who tried to get inside and land takedowns, but was usually met with a painful Shevchenko counter. There was a Shevchenko submission attempt in the fourth round, but Carmouche defended well. It wasn't the most exciting bout of the night - particularly with the Vicente Luque vs. Mike Perry war preceding it - but by the end, it was clear that the champion deserved to win. The judges scored it 50-45,
