Noche UFC: Erin Blanchfield Shares Prediction For Valentina Shevchenko vs. Alexa Grasso 

10 months ago By Sports Desk

Erin Blanchfield knows who she’s betting on for the Valentina Shevchenko vs. Alexa Grasso title fight at Noche UFC. The mercurial women’s flyweight contender recently shared her two cents on the matchup and predicted that Grasso could repeat her UFC 285 performance this weekend. 

Shevchenko will try to reclaim the 125-pound strap against Grasso at Noche UFC in Las Vegas. The UFC’s Mexican Independence Day special event is set to go down at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on September 16. While the Shevchenko-Grasso title fight headlines the Fight Night event, a pivotal welterweight contest between Kevin Holland and Jack Della Maddalena will serve as the co-main event. 

In their last meeting at UFC 285, Grasso secured a fourth-round submission to secure an upset win over ‘Bullet.’ While Valentina Shevchenko was a massive betting favorite, Grasso’s ability to capitalize on her opponent’s mistake proved beneficial. Prior to that loss, Shevchenko had recorded seven title defenses and was unbeaten in nine fights. 

In a recent interview with MMA Fighting, Erin Blanchfield discussed the highly anticipated matchup. During the conversation, ‘Cold Blooded’ admitted that few could match Shevchenko’s dominance in the division. However, she speculated that Grasso’s experience against Shevchenko would prove vital in this bout. 

Claiming that Alexa Grasso would make the required adjustments to her game, Blanchfield stated that she could outpoint Valentina Shevchenko. Referring to their last fight, when ‘Bullet’ was ahead on the judges’ scorecards, ‘Cold Blooded’ outlined how this matchup would prove Shevchenko’s lack of adaptability. 

Interestingly, Erin Blanchfield is likely to challenge the winner of the Valentina Shevchenko vs. Alexa Grasso fight for the title. After defeating Taila Santos at UFC Singapore, Blanchfield made it abundantly clear that she’s a legitimate title contender. Given whats at stake, the 24-year-old will undoubtedly be watching this fight closely
