The 31 year-old Shevchenko last fought in August 2019, when she avenged her first ever loss way back in 2010 by beating the American Liz “Girl-Rilla” Carmouche on a unanimous decision.

The Brazilian Amanda Nunes is the only other fighter ever to beat Shevchenko, having done so twice in closely fought contests.

Betting Odds - Winner

The 31 year-old Chookagian was last in the octagon in November last year, when she beat the Brazilian Jennifer Maia on a unanimous decision.

Chookagian brings strong grappling skills, a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, good movement and volume striking, but it’s noticeable that her lack of knockout power means that all the American’s wins in the UFC to date have come via decision. That looks likely to be a tough result to replicate against a fighter with Shevchenko’s quality and experience.
