Erin Blanchfield secured yet another impressive win this past weekend at UFC 269. Following her win at the pay-per-view, the UFC Flyweight is full of confidence and believes that she can dethrone Valentina Shevchenko when the two finally meet.

Blanchfield noted the same in her recent interview with The Schmo.

"I feel like everyone thinks Valentina is unbeatable, but that's not true about anybody. And I don't know if there's anybody, like, right now that's gonna beat her until I get there, but I know I definitely will,” she said. (h/t Sportskeeda).

Currently holding a professional record of 8-1 to her name, Blanchfield outclassed Miranda Maverick at UFC 269 and is riding high on a five-fight winning streak. The only loss in her career came against Tracy Cortez back in 2019 and Blanchfield notes that she is open to a rematch with Cortez to settle the scores.

"If it comes along I'll definitely take that fight. I know she was fighting at 35 for a while and she came to 25 but she missed. I'm not gonna like chase her. I wanna move up the rankings so if I have to fight her in order to get into the rankings or to move up, I will. But if she kinda dillie dollies and doesn't do anything then I'm not gonna go chasing her,” Blanchfield added.
