Co-headlining UFC 275 was the flyweight title bout between dominant champion Valentina Shevchenko and Taila Santos. Shevchenko naturally came in as the favorite, having been champion for about four years and having six title defenses in her belt already. Santos surprised onlookers though, winning the grappling exchanges, especially early for on and pushing Shevchenko the most in years.

It was close and competitive, with likely the second stanza being the swing round. In the end, despite a good run from Santos, it was a split decision victory for the champion in Shevchenko.

Watch highlights along with a snippet of our play-by-play below:
