Shevchenko (14-2 MMA, 3-1 UFC) submitted Pena (8-3 MMA, 4-1 UFC) with an armbar late in the second round, stunning “The Venezulan Vixen” with the finish. It was Shevchenko’s first submission win in nearly 11 years.
Afterward, women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes came into the cage to set up her likely next challenger – Shevchenko, whom she beat by decision at UFC 196 less than a year ago to get her shot at the title, which she won at UFC 200.
Their fight was the main event of the FOX-televised UFC on FOX 23 at Pepsi Center in Denver.
Check out the highlights of Shevchenko’s win above.
