Shevchenko v Eubanks set to be main event at UFC 230

It has only been a few days since the UFC announced a bout between Valentina Shevchenko and former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk would take place at end of the year for the vacant flyweight belt.

It now appears the UFC has had a change of mind and moved Shevchenko to headline UFC 230 at Madison Square Gardens in New York but her opponent will now be Sijara Eubanks for the vacant flyweight title on Nov 3rd.

The news was broken by ESPN’s Brett Okamoto through Twitter.

This move would also mean that the Nate Diaz and Dustin Poirier fight will be co-main and will not be for a 165 pounds title.
