On 6 June 2020, she was scheduled to face Joanne Calderwood at UFC 250. However, a leg injury pulled her out of the fight. Before claiming the second UFC ranking, she got the fortune to defend her fourth title defenses against Jennifer Maia on 21 November 2020 at UFC 255 and won the fight via unanimous decision.

Dating Status

Despite the successful career, it looks like Valentina is yet to accomplish her dating life. The 31-year-old has not disclosed her relationship status to the media eyes.

Surfing through her Instagram, it seems like she is actively involved in her profession. She is currently enjoying her professional life rather than searching for a partner for her life. Her focus is sharp towards inching the first UFC ranking and the hype is even more from her recent big win against Jennifer Maia to secure the Flyweight title. Also, the reticent nature of Valentina on her personal life creates more speculation of her probable singleness or likely dating she must have been keeping away from the reach of the public limelight.
