Coming off of last night’s first-round win over Joanne Calderwood, Jennifer Maia has apparently been granted a title shot.

Valentina Shevchenko will now defend the flyweight championship against the Brazilian.

Dana White confirmed the fight at last night’s press conference, though he didn’t set a place or date.

Maia submitted the experienced Calderwood at UFC Vegas, held at the UFC Apex.
