Valentina Shevchenko took note of the shocking submission win by Jennifer Maia Saturday night at UFC Fight Night  on ESPN+.
While Shevchenko continues to recover from an injury, her scheduled opponent, Joanne Calderwood, took a fight with Maia.
That decision backfired, as the 31-year-old Brazilian locked up a first round armbar to secure the win and improve to 3-1 in her last four. The only loss was via decision to Katlyn Chookagian.
“See you soon Jennifer Maia,” Shevchenko tweeted moments after the bout.
See you soon Jennifer Maia 👊🏻

The former Invicta FC champion could very well be the next title contender, as she gladly accepted the fight with Shevchenko.
