Valentina Shevchenko has been dominating the UFC Flyweight division for a long time now. Shevchenko has not suffered a defeat since 2018 and is currently on an impressive eight-fight winning streak.

She recently secured a dominant win over Lauren Murphy and a lot of people have concluded that Shevchenko cannot be stopped at Flyweight. Former UFC Champion Henry Cejudo, however, thinks otherwise.

In the recent episode of The Triple C & Schmo Show, Henry Cejudo revealed two names that could cause problems for Valentina Shevchenko.

"I still, want to see if Alexa Grasso is willing to step up to that plate with the power she has for her hands. I'm willing and want to see [Amanda] Lemos from Brazil step up and see what she has at 125 pounds too. So it's exciting Schmo, that's all she wrote,” Cejudo said (h/t Sportskeeda).

Grasso currently holds a professional record of 13-3 to her name and is on a two-fight winning streak having defeated Maycee Barber and Ji Yeon Kim. Amanda Lemos, meanwhile, is 11-1 in her professional MMA career so far.

The 34-year-old Brazilian is on a five-fight winning streak and recently secured wins against Angela Hill and Montserrat Ruiz. Her only loss in the promotion and her career came against Leslie Smith back in 2017.
