The main event features the only Mexican UFC champion, Alexa Grasso. Grasso defeated Empress Shevchenko at UFC 285 last March to become the UFC women’s flyweight champion. Shevchenko was on a nine-game winning streak since 2018 and was considered one of the best fighters in the history of the UFC women’s division, so her result was perceived as an upset.
Shevchenko believes the loss was an ‘accident’. She was dominating Grasso with her wrestling until she was locked in a rear naked choke after a failed spinning back kick in the fourth round. “Nothing changes with one loss,” Shevchenko said. “Because I still have the spirit of a champion,” she said, burning her will to reclaim the belt.
Grasso believes that there are no ‘accidents’. He said, “Shevchenko’s reaction was surprising because I know that there is no such thing as an accident if you are an experienced player and fight at a high level.” He continued, “I trained for that moment. “It was the result of training to win that match,” he said, emphasizing that the submission victory was not a coincidence.
Gamblers are still predicting Shevchenko’s slight lead. Grasso must overturn public expectations and prove himself once again. “The most important thing at the top level is to stay motivated, stay hungry and do your best to improve,” said Grasso, determined to win because he and his teammates did their best.
