Valentina enjoyed her first KO win at the age of 12, obliterating her 22-year-old opponent, and earning the nickname, ?Bullet? because of her amazing speed in the ring.
Valentina survived a violent shootout back in May 2016. Three armed men held up a chicken restaurant in Chorrillos where UFC competitor Valentina Shevchenko was eating with her trainer on Monday night. Two men beat the patrons while demanding money and cell phones while another demanded cash from the register. Fedotov and another customer drew their personal guns and opened fire. The assailants returned fire as they fled. At least 15 shots were fired, according to witnesses. The shootout left one of the assailants dead and two patrons injured, including Fedotov. The Russian Muay Thai trainer suffered a bullet wound in the abdomen.
In her Flyweight debut in 2018 she outlanded her opponent Priscila Cachoeira 95-2?? in significant strikes with a whooping 84% striking accuracy.
Valentina is fluent in Spanish in addition to her native tongue of Russian. She learned Spanish after moving to Peru with her sister in 2008 ? the two lived there for almost a decade.
Valentina trains MMA since 5 years of age. Her mother insisted her to attend dancing classes, so she doesn`t lose her effeminacy.
