Before Jon Jones and Ciryl Gane battle it out for the undisputed heavyweight title on March 4 in Las Vegas, the most dominant champion in the UFC will defend her flyweight crown at T-Mobile Arena, as Valentina Shevchenko faces Mexico’s Alexa Grasso in the co-main event of UFC 285.
Unbeaten since 2018, Shevchenko has successfully defended her 125-pound title seven times, defeating the likes of Jessica Eye, Katlyn Chookagian, Jessica Andrade, Lauren Murphy and Taila Santos. Next on the hit list for “Bullet” is the number five-ranked Grasso, who is perfect in the Octagon at flyweight, with wins over Ji Yeon Kim, Maycee Barber, Joanne Wood and Viviane Araujo.
