Watch: the best of Valentina Shevchenko from MuayThai to UFC
Valentina Shevchenko is set for a fight with Holly Holm this summer - and you can imagine many MMA fans going: "huh, who is she?"
This compliation of fights and interviews with the Kyrgyzstani fighter was made by Steven Wright (who made Shin on Shin Europe you saw here last week).
It includes her defeat of Australian super-star Caley Reece during an amateur-style MuayThai fight, and her three MuayThai wins against Polish UFC champ Joanna Jedrzejczyk, also a pro fight with Martina Jindrova (Czech republic)

It cracks me up the way some publications dismiss fighters' pasts before the UFC, that's where all the hard work is done people!
