Noche UFC: Alexa Grasso Expects Tougher Rematch Against Valentina Shevchenko

10 months ago By Sports Desk

Alexa Grasso isn’t taking her title rematch against Valentina Shevchenko lightly at all. The reigning women’s flyweight champion is set to face ‘Bullet’ in a title fight at Noche UFC this weekend. Noche UFC is a special Mexican Independence Day event that is set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on September 16. Interestingly, this would mark a rare occasion when the promotion books a championship fight for a Fight Night event. 

Grasso last faced Shevchenko at UFC 285 in March. Given Shevchenko’s incredible resume, many expected her to successfully defend her flyweight title. However, Grasso defied all the odds to submit ‘Bullet’ in the fourth round and go home as the undisputed women’s flyweight champion. However, the mercurial Mexican fighter knew she had to beat Shevchenko in a rubber match to truly cement her spot as the divisional queen. 

During a recent Spanish interview with MMA Junkie, Alexa Grasso shared her two cents on her rematch against Valentina Shevchenko. The reigning flyweight queen opined that she expected ‘Bullet’ to get an immediate rematch off the back of her resume. As a former flyweight champion, Shevchenko has been one of the most dominant UFC champions in recent memory. 

Citing the promotion’s traditional method of granting a long-reigning champion an immediate rematch upon a title loss, Grasso showed no sign of surprise as she broke down her next challenge this weekend. While Grasso was uncertain how the rematch would go, she knows it’s not going to be easy. However, the 30-year-old Mexican wants Valentina Shevchenko to come at her with everything she’s got.

Further elaborating on her point, Alexa Grasso claimed she’s ready for whatever Shevchenko throws at her. She admitted that while she has her weak spots, she also knows ‘Bullet’s weaknesses.
