Shevchenko is gearing up for her first title shot when she faces the reigning champion, Amanda Nunes, at UFC 213 in July.

Nunes and Shevchenko previously met at UFC 196 with Nunes prevailing by unanimous decision.

UFC bantamweight title contender Valentina Shevchenko has just proven why her fight name "Bullet" is pretty damn accurate. Since then, she has scored back-to-back stoppage victories over former champions Miesha Tate at UFC 200 and Ronda Rousey at UFC 207. But even with the pressure that came with the bright light that seems to follow Rousey around wherever she goes, Nunes dispatched the former champion with a 46-second TKO, defending her belt and earning her third Performance of the Night bonus.

UFC 213 will take place July 8 at T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The entire event will serve as the main attraction of the UFC's annual International Fight Week.
