Alexa Grasso pulled off a stunner earlier this year to become champion.
That might have been the easy part. Saturday, she gets a true test. Grasso (16-3 MMA, 8-3 UFC) takes on the woman she submitted to win the women’s flyweight title, Valentina Shevchenko (23-4 MMA, 12-3 UFC), who before that had a dominant and long reign as champ. They headline Noche UFC at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Grasso had to have figured if she upset Shevchenko, she’d be looking at a rematch for her first title defense. That’s exactly what happened. What will Shevchenko have done to make adjustments? And what will Grasso have done to nullify those adjustments?
Will the fight play out the same as the first one, or do we throw that one out the window?
This week’s “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Brian “Goze” Garcia, Nolan King and Danny Segura break it all down with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
