Alexa Grasso vs Valentina Shevchenko II – Preview and Prediction

Alexa Grasso will make her first flyweight title defense against Valentina Shevchenko at UFC Noche this Saturday nightie the UFC’s first ever Mexican Independence Day event.

The fight marks a big time rematch as Grasso shocked the world when she took the title from Shevchenko at UFC 285 in March.

Here’s a preview and prediction of the UFC Noche main event.

The preview and prediction can also be seen in the video above.


Forget about looking too far into pass for this main event as the farthest you need to go is back to March.

Grasso was a game opponent, but Shevchenko was winning the fight before Grasso countered a spinning back kick by taking Shevchenko down and getting a submission.

Two questions coming into this fight are; can Grasso do it again or will Shevchenko right the wrong?

Tale of the Tape

Everything is just about the same. The only big difference is the age gap as Shevchenko is the elder fight by five years at 35-years-old.


This fight is a pick ‘em fight. Shevchenko is the slightest of favorites, but for the most part the oddsmakers are torn as to who wins.


And still Alexa Grasso or and new Valentina Shevchenko will be yelled into the microphone by Bruce Buffer, but who wins?

Shevchenko has been as dominate as a champion can be and she has been the flyweight queen for years. We’ve seen her start to loose her dominate presence recently, but she still managed to win fights.

Grasso was a big underdog and shocked the world.

The fact that Shevchenko was winning their first fight has to make you think she made a mistake and Grasso was ready for it too happen.

As long as Shevchenko is mentally together after the upset, she should have more tools to win the fight.

I think Shevchenko wouldn’t take a big chance to avoid being countered like the last time, but will still blend together a good mix of standup and takedowns throughout a 25 minute contest.

Shevchenko wins by decision.
