Julianna Peña releases statement after submission loss to Valentina Shevchenko

On Saturday night, in the main event of [the UFC’s latest trip to Denver](https://www.bjpenn…

Regrettably for Peña and her many fans, Saturday night was not her night. In advance of the fight, the consensus seemed to be that she had a significant grappling edge over her striking-based foe. In the end, however, Shevchenko was able to succeed on two takedowns in the first round, and in the second, lock up an arm-bar for the win. And just like that Peña’s title dreams came to a skittering – if temporary – halt.
