UFC Star Valentina Shevchenko is spending some time enjoying the sun before she jumps back into the cage.
Earlier this year, Shevchenko suffered a stunning loss to Mexican Alexa Grasso at UFC 285.

Shevchenko has since demanded a rematch against Grasso because she felt she was dominating the fight before she made a mistake and got submitted.
“Definitely an immediate rematch, because I know I was winning the fight,”
“This is kind of like what happens in mixed martial arts,” said Shevchenko. “You’re winning the fight all around, all three rounds, no doubt. And a stupid situation can change the whole game.
“This is the part of the game. Congratulations to Alexa, and I know that I’m stronger and if not this spinning kick, [it] would be a different result.”
On Thursday, Shevchenko shared a bathing suit photo on Instagram with the caption “summer.”
