The Flyweight Champion
Fighting out of Guadalajara, Mexico, Alexa Grasso has achieved her goal by climbing the mountain to become the UFC Women's Flyweight Champion of the World. She's done it displaying incredible talent, a friendly disposition and immaculate professionalism. We couldn't be prouder to see her reach the pinnacle of her sport.
After defeating fellow rising contender Maycee Barber at UFC 258, UFC fans were convinced that Grasso was the new top contender in the UFC Flyweight division. When she beat Joanne Wood by submission in March 2022, the world was convinced.
After defeating Viviane Araujo, she got her shot at the title at UFC 285 in March 2023, and she grasped the opportunity with both hands. She grew into the fight in the early exchanges before a stunning takedown, followed by a brutal rear-naked choke hold, had one of the all time greats in Valentina Shevchenko tapping out in the fourth round.
Alexa Grasso has now achieved greatness; she took out a lot of top contenders along her way and she has always performed, regardless of the odds or challenges. She has proven fight fans wrong countless times, and now has the UFC belt to show for it. Her victory over Shevchenko will live long in the memory and we are hugely proud of her.
