Valentina Shevchenko vs. Taila Santos Odds: Shevchenko Given 86% Chance To Beat Santos

When: June 11, 10:00 PM EDT

Where: Singapore Indoor Stadium, Kallang, Singapore

We head to Singapore for UFC 275 this weekend as the company makes it long-awaited debut in the South East Asia country. In what should be a great night of fights, the light heavyweight title will be on the line in the main event as 42-year-old Glover Teixeira will defend his belt for the first time against newcomer Jiri Procházka. 

Before we get there, however, a pair of women’s flyweights will go at it for a belt of their own, as Valentina Shevchenko will look to defend her belt yet again this time against the red hot Taila Santos. Let’s take a closer look at the action and where it’s headed as fight night approaches.

Valentina Shevchenko (22-3)

The only active women’s fighter to hold victories over four current or former UFC champions, Shevchenko has been atop the women’s flyweight division since beating Joanna Jędrzejczyk at UFC 231 in December 2018. In the six defenses since, four have ended via TKO/KO, including her previous fights over Jessica Andrade and Lauren Murphy.

Coming into this fight vs. Santos, Shevchenko will face arguably her toughest test to date, as she will be matched in both striking and grappling metrics.

Taila Santos (19-1)

Santos joined the UFC in 2018 via Dana White’s Contender Series, losing her first (and only) fight in the following fight; a split decision loss to Mara Romero Borella. Since then, Santos has rattled off four straight wins, including a first-round submission (rear-naked choke) win over Joanne Wood in November that set up this title opportunity. 

A Blue belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Santos will likely look to take this one to the ground early and often against a striker-first fighter in Shevchenko. Whether she’ll be able to do so will be a different story, as Shevchenko’s takedown defense is hovering just under 80%. If she is able to get her there, Santos holds a big edge in submission average at 1.13 (vs. 34) per 15 minutes inside the octagon. 

Valentina Shevchenko vs Taila Santos Odds

As of Tuesday, those looking to get down on the champ should head to DraftKings (-630), while those looking to take a flyer on the underdog are best suited at PointsBet (+550).
