Dana White revealed that he might make the Valentina Shevchenko vs. Amanda Nunes trilogy fight happen if both these fighters win their upcoming fights.

Dana White spoke about the possibility of a trilogy fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Amanda Nunes in a recent interview with TSN.

"The more hungry people get, the more they want to see it, the more it makes me want to make it. So if she [Valentina] wins and Amanda beats Peña and they're both into it, I'm interested in talking about it. When somebody is as dominant as these two are, that's what you always say but there's always going to be a challenger.
"There's no doubt that Nunes is the greatest female fighter of all time, I mean there's absolutely no doubt or question about it. There's no doubt that Valentina is also one of the greatest female fighters of all time, so to do them again makes sense. Nunes has two wins, usually when somebody has two on somebody you don't do it again. But that one's just so interesting."
