Report: Shevchenko Vs. Jedrzejcyk Rebooked For UFC 231


Despite the UFC’s controversial decision to cancel this bout in order to create a UFC 230 headliner, Valentina Shevchenko has once again been booked to face Joanna Jedrzejcyk at UFC 231.

Another very strange decision from the UFC brass it seems as Valentina Shevchenko is once again re-booked to face off against Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231.

Brett Okamoto of ESPN reported that UFC president Dana White had confirmed that the fight had been moved back to UFC 231 in Toronto following the move to book Derrick Lewis for UFC heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier’s first title defense.

Sure, we’re getting ourselves one helluva 125lb title bout but for the originally scheduled challenger Sijara Eubanks, it does seem as though she has been unfairly used and then discarded by the UFC just under one month out from the biggest fight of her life.

She took to her own official Twitter to express her disappointment in the promotion’s decision and what it will cost her.
