I don’t care: Valentina Shevchenko responds to callout from Amanda Serrano

Valentina Shevchenko has been reigning on top of the UFC Flyweight Division for a long time now. The Bullet has cleared out the division in style and is waiting for the next challenge to rise.

While she has received a long list of call-outs during her time as the champion, one interesting call-out that came at Shevchenko was the one from boxing sensation Amanda Serrano.

Serrano, who has already crossed over to MMA, had called out Valentina Shevchenko for a Flyweight title showdown in the UFC. In her recent interview on the Monster Energy YouTube Channel, Shevchenko reacted to the call out and said that she does not care who her opponent is.

"It’s nothing special, it’s nothing new for me. It’s happening in flyweight, every other new girl who joins the UFC and is having their debut straight away starts calling my name out and saying they will be my next challenger. But what happens after, they have one or two fights; they lose this fight and that’s it. We are moving forward and that’s why I get used to people calling me out and wanting to fight, so it’s whatever. One more, one less, people don’t care, and I don’t care,” Shevchenko said (h/t Sportskeeda).
