Steven Wright's Newest Highlight Shows How Valentina Shevchenko is Great at Everything

Consider my surprise this weekend when I saw the name Valentina Shevchenko showing up on my Twitter feed and not just from the usual kickboxing people, but from your run-of-the-mill UFC fans. Apparently Shevchenko has made it into the UFC and not only that, she just beat up Sarah Kaufman this past weekend. Damn, right? Shevchenko has been a well-known quantity in the world of kickboxing and muay thai for quite a while now, one of the premier female talents anywhere.

Our pal Steven Wright is celebrating this by delivering one of his absolutely best highlights to date, this time showcasing "The Bullet" throughout her storied career. Don't miss it.

Liam Harrison vs. Tetsuya Yamato on Tap for Yokkao 17

Yokkao are looking to start their 2016 off with a bang with their Yokkao 17 and Yokkao 18 double header in Bolton, UK. Already on tap is Jordan Watson vs. Sanny Dahlbeck for the Yokkao 70kg championship. Now it is official that two of the best at 65kg will be squaring off as Liam Harrison will take on Tetsuya Yamato. Those two fights alone are worth the price of admission and Yokkao is once again giving our friends across the pond some of the best action that you'll see anywhere. 

Yokkao will also be ringing in the new year by opening up their official training center in Bangkok, Thailand in January. The soft launch is this week for those of you in the area, you can find out more on their website. The facility is located in the famous  Sukhumvit Soi 16 with construction starting just about a month ago now, with everything looking on track for a January opening. Saenchai and Singdam are scheduled to be there when it opens, so if you are in the area this seems like a can't miss for muay thai fans.

Surprise! Fedor Really is Fighting Jaideep, Plus Masato vs. KID is Still On

New Year's Eve is rapidly approaching and now that Star Wars has been released there is nothing in between us and New Year's Eve. Okay, maybe a few holidays, but still, it's just a matter of days now and we are finally getting some clarification on what we can all expect to go down. Remember how initially it was reported that Fedor Emelianenko would be fighting Jaideep Singh, then RIZIN FF and Jerry Millen denied it? Well, I can't find Millen's tweet anymore, because he's that kind of guy, but that did, indeed happen. 

Now, today, RIZIN FF sent out a press release announcing Fedor vs. Jaideep. 

Go figure, right?

On another front, remember how we said before that it looked like KID Yamamoto vs. Masato was in peril because of KID Yamamoto's tattoos? Apparently that fight is still on and while it will still be an exhibition, it will no longer be just a single round, it will now be three rounds.
