Title: Flyweight Championship Rematch Set for Noche UFC: Alexa Grasso vs Valentina Shevchenko
Swerd Media – In an eagerly anticipated event, Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko are gearing up for a high-stakes rematch at Noche UFC. With both fighters successfully making weight at 124.5 pounds each, fans can expect an intense battle for the flyweight championship.
Grasso, who emerged victorious in their first encounter at UFC 285, put an end to Shevchenko’s impressive four-year title reign. Since moving up to 125 pounds in 2020, Grasso has been on an unbeaten streak, showcasing her dominance in the division after struggling with weight cuts at 115 pounds.
Meanwhile, Shevchenko aims to reclaim her title after experiencing defeat for the first time in nine consecutive fights, courtesy of Grasso. Currently ranked No. 2 in MMA Fighting’s Pound-for-Pound rankings, Grasso will have to bring her A-game as Shevchenko closely follows behind at No. 3.
The excitement doesn’t end there, as all 22 fighters on the card successfully made weight for their respective bouts. The co-main event will feature welterweight contenders Jack Della Maddalena and Kevin Holland, further enhancing the anticipation surrounding the event.
Notably, Della Maddalena experienced a tense moment when he arrived last for the weigh-ins. However, he successfully hit the maximum weight allowed for a non-title welterweight bout at 171 pounds, putting an end to any concerns surrounding his eligibility to compete.
The Noche UFC event is scheduled to be held at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Fans can witness the heart-pounding action as the main card is set to air on ESPN+. Whether it is the exhilarating flyweight rematch or the electrifying showdown between Della Maddalena and Holland, this event promises to deliver a memorable night of MMA.
