Valentina Shevchenko earns the 6th knockout in UFC championship history stemming from a head kick. She joins Anderson Silva, Renan Barao, Holly Holm, Georges St-Pierre, and TJ Dillashaw with what may very well be the Knockout of the Year.  #UFC238

In the co-main event Shevchenko made the first defense of her flyweight title by delivering a devastating head kick to Jessica Eye early in the second round. The brutal blow left Eye out cold on the mat for several minutes as doctors attended to her before she sat up to the cheers of concerned fans.
