Alexa grasso e Valentina Shevchenko will share the octagon for the third consecutive time, probably at UFC 306, scheduled for September 14th. However, the current flyweight champion (up to 56,7kg) and the former owner of the belt have the same thought in common: both do not want a quadrilogy in the sequence and have pointed out possible rivals for the winner of the duel.

“Right now, after our fight, it has to be Manon (Fiorot) or Erin (Blanchfield). I think Manon is ahead on this list. But anything can happen this time. We still have more time, about three months, a little more after the fight so we can rest a little. Anything can happen, but right now, I would say Manon is next,” Valentina told 'MMA Junkie'.


The champion was also open to a duel with Fiorot, if she successfully defends the belt in the trilogy with Valentina Shevchenko.

“If I have to fight her (Manon Fiorot), will be amazing. She's big, she's strong, she has a lot of talent. So, for me, it could be a perfect fight,” she concluded the champion.


Protagonists of the thirty-second edition of the reality show The Ultimate Fighter, Alexa grasso e Valentina Shevchenko will face each other for the third time in a row. In the first duel, the Mexican won by submission and in the expected rematch, the belt remained in the champion's possession after a draw. The trilogy should take place at UFC 306, an event scheduled for September 14th in Las Vegas (USA).
