Per Nolan King (@mma_kings) via Twitter, at UFC Fight Night 129 in Santiago, Chile, on May 19, two exciting strawweight prospects will collide when Mexico’s Alexa Grasso (10-1) meets TUF 23 victor Tatiana Suarez (5-0).
Undefeated in five professional fights, the talented grappler will be making her third IFC appearance. Suarez won season 23 of The Ultimate Figbter by submitting Amanda Bobby Cooper in the finals. After lengthy time off due to a string of injuries, Suarez returned in November to defeat Viviane Pereira via unanimous decision.
Invicta FC veteran Alexa Grasso will look to put a streak together versus Suarez. The popular 24-year-old last defeated Randa Markos by split-decision in August. Grasso is 10-1 in her career with her sole loss coming to Felice Herrig in her second UFC fight.
Who will you be rooting for?
