Valentina Shevchenko Explains Why 'Nature' Is an Important Factor in Her Life

UFC Women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko and her sister Antonina Shevchenko spoke to Jim Norton and Matt Serra on the podcast, UFC Unfiltered with Jim Norton and Matt Serra. On the show, the Shevchenko sisters talked about many things ahead of their fights at UFC 255. One of the things that they touched upon was how nature helped them maintain balance in their lives.

The sisters currently live in Las Vegas, Nevada. And they seem to enjoy their time in nature very much doing some fun activities. It gives them scope to enjoy free time, and get the energy to go through grueling fight camps.

The UFC women’s flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko said, “Yes and no, not always. We can enjoy simple things like we love to go to nature, we love to spend time, for example, we are living in Las Vegas, and here in Nevada, Mojave desert, there’s always a beautiful lake meet and it forms the river color out of it.”

“And all the time we’re here we’re spending on the lake. And it’s amazing because there we will be boating, we fishing, we catch some fish, we bring it back home, we cook it. So it’s the simple things that made our life enjoyable and nice and beautiful.”

Valentina touched upon how fighters aren’t crazy machines to be active all the time. She revealed that she appreciated whatever free time she got and claimed that it was amazing to have this type of control. According to the champion, it’s all about finding the right balance between everything in life. That is the key to peace and achieving success.

She concluded, “Actually, we’re just trying to spend every day in interesting ways that we like. We do things like shooting and flying, just going to the lake or just fishing. It’s just what we like in general. That’s why we spend days and days and days in this.”

Clearly, the exciting fighter likes to keep her personal life exciting as well.  She does so by enjoying different aspects and the adventures of life. It’s fair to say her rules apply to everyone else on this planet, as finding the proper balance between things is the most important aspect of life.

The Shevchenko sisters both had a triumphant outing at the UFC 255 card. Valentina successfully defended her title against Jennifer Maia. Antonina on the other hand managed a stoppage win over Ariane Lipski in the prelims. What do you make of Valentina Shevchenko’s view on life? Let us know in the comments.
