Nicco Montano has been stripped of her flyweight championship following her being pulled from the UFC 228 co-main event against Valentina Shevchenko, according to TSN Sports’ Aaron Bronsteter.

According to the report: “Valentina Shevchenko will fight an opponent to be determined at a later date. They have an opponent in mind, but nothing is confirmed.”

Montano won the flyweight championship at the TUF 27 Finale last December against Roxanne Modafferi and had been dealing with numerous injuries since.
