One woman who wants to try and do the same in the UFC is Kayla Harrison. In recent times, the Olympian has managed to become a two-time PFL lightweight champion and now she is ready to take the next step in her mixed martial arts career.

Shevchenko, however, believes finding an opponent for him will prove to be quite tricky.

“I haven’t watched her fights but I know she’s kind of like finishing everyone else in the first round. Yes definitely it’s a good thing for female martial arts that you have strong women like her in the UFC and outside… It’s very difficult I think for her to find someone really tall. level because of the weight class. If you have your natural power and weight, every time it’s best for you. Just my opinion, it will be very hard for her to find opponents [in the UFC]. “
