Valentina Shevchenko fires back at offended kid
Valentina Shevchenko fires back at ‘offended kid’ Sean Strickland for women’s MMA comments
Shevchenko on Friday fired off a rare shot on social media after the UFC middleweight champion insulted Paige VanZant and called women’s MMA “lame.” Strickland’s remarks came after VanZant recently told the Only Stans podcast that she earned more money in just 24 hours on her Only Fans platform than through all of her fight purses combined.

A former flyweight champion, Shevchenko is generally hailed as one of the greatest mixed martial artists in UFC history, regardless of gender. The 35-year-old racked up seven consecutive title defenses after capturing the UFC flyweight title with a victory over Joanna Jędrzejczyk in 2018. Her run of dominance included victories over Liz Carmouche, Jessica Andrade, Taila Santos, and Lauren Murphy prior to her stunning loss at Alexa Grasso.
Shevchenko, who started her professional MMA career all the way back in 2003, returned fire at Strickland on social media on Friday, telling the UFC middleweight champ that he looked “more like an offended kid” in his divisive comments about VanZant.
