Main Card

Alexa Grasso

Alexa Grasso (16-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) will be stepping into the octagon to defend her women’s flyweight title for the first time. Her journey to the championship was nothing short of remarkable. In a major upset, Grasso dethroned the long-reigning champion, Valentina Shevchenko, with a fourth-round submission victory at UFC 285. What made this victory even more incredible was the fact that Grasso entered the fight as an underdog with the odds stacked against her. The 30-year-old fighter from Mexico showcased her resilience and skill in that contest and hasn’t experienced defeat in nearly four years.

Grasso’s victory in March was no fluke; it was a testament to her skills and fight IQ. She expertly executed a rear-naked choke to secure the submission win, capitalizing on an opportunity created by a spinning attack from Shevchenko. To dismiss it as a fluke would be a disservice to Grasso’s abilities. Shevchenko, on the other hand, was dominating the competition as the champion, and while she possesses the tools to regain her belt, her recent performances have shown a less dominant version of herself.

Valentina Shevchenko

Valentina Shevchenko (23-4 MMA, 12-3 UFC), a name synonymous with dominance in the women’s flyweight division, is now the challenger. Her reign over the division was unquestionable until Grasso’s shocking upset. Before the loss, Shevchenko had been a force to be reckoned with since 2010, with her only MMA defeat coming at the hands of the formidable Amanda Nunes. Notably, both losses occurred in the bantamweight division. After a narrow split decision loss to Nunes six years ago, Shevchenko embarked on a remarkable nine-fight winning streak. However, Grasso’s upset changed the landscape. Despite being the challenger this time around, Shevchenko enters the rematch as the favorite, albeit with much closer odds.
