Saturday night in the UFC Vegas 62 main event, Alexa Grasso emerged victorious in flyweight competition, defeating Viviane Araujo by way of a unanimous decision (50-45, 49-46, 49-46).
Both ladies put it all on the line but ultimately it was Grasso who dictated the pace of the fight with her superior boxing skills. The 29-year-old displayed some very sharp striking and was able to defend the majority of the grappling attack implemented by Araujo.
Grasso improves her professional record to 14-3-0 and is now 4-0 since moving up to the 125-pound flyweight division. The Mexican is the highest ranked flyweight contender who has yet to face off against the division’s champion Valentina Shevchenko.
