One person who wasn’t impressed with Shevchenko’s performance was two division UFC champion Henry Cejudo.
Cejudo would let his feelings known about the allegedly lackluster bout via a video on Twitter, where the two division champion would also challenge Shevchenko to an intergender bout:
Here is a transcript of what Cejudo said, provided by Farah Hannoun of MMA Junkie:
“So I’m out here enjoying my beautiful Sunday in beautiful Las Vegas, but my phone just keeps blowing up. That somebody by the name of Valentina ‘Bullet’ Shevchenko is the most dominant champion in the world. And guess what? I get a little jelly, because you know what? She has gold, and I want that gold. Valentina Shevchenko, I have a message for you: I’m looking to become the first intergender world champion that this world has ever seen. I’m calling you out. You can be the next to bend the knee to ‘Triple C.'”
It is highly unlikely that the intergender fight comes together, as neither the UFC or any other reputable MMA organization puts male versus female fights together.
