Shevchenko still adamant she defeated Nunes

Valentina Shevchenko released a lengthy statement pointing out errors in scoring following her narrow decision loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 215.

The Russian lost in a split decision to the UFC bantamweight champion on Saturday and immediately pointed out in the post fight interview that she had not even been struck once in the face.

The three judges scored the bout 48-47, 47-48, 48-47 in favour of the Brazilian, marking her second successful title defence.

But days after the fight, Shevchenko is still reeling from the loss and called foul in a comprehensive Instagram post.
