Michael Bisping expects Alexa Grasso to win against Valentina Shevchenko

There was a lot of discussion on Michael Bisping's YouTube channel about the match between Valentina Shevchenko and Alexa Grasso. Bisping believes that Valentina will experience defeat this time, despite her absolute dominance in her category.

Essentially, Michael believes that a new persona should begin to dominate, as the end of an era will come.
“It might sound crazy, but I think Alexa is the better fighter,” Bisping said on his YouTube channel. “That doesn’t sound crazy to me at all.

I thought Alexa looked really good. I think that Valentina Shevchenko has been a dominant force for so long, but everyone has their time. Everyone has their end. Everyone has their beginning of the end." There is still doubt in Bisping's head about Shevchenko and whether her dominance will really come to an end.

“Is this the beginning of the end of Shevchenko? Are her best days behind her? I don’t know – maybe. Maybe she had an off night. Maybe Alexa Grasso is just a better fighter. I thought she looked very well. It certainly wasn’t a fluke."

Michael Bisping: Shevchenko needs to be a hungry killer

In addition to being a big fan of Valentina, Michael believes she needs to make a few changes.

In the opinion of the Englishman, Schevchenko must once again be that aggressive fighter who is willing to destroy anyone who stands in her way. “I’m a fan of Valentina, so this is not an insult, she (was) a dominant champion, and sometimes you start getting into the mind set, like George St-Pierre, that you get too passive in the fight, maybe a bit too defensive,” Bisping said.

“She needs to go back to being that hungry killer. She needs to go forward and be the aggressor, as opposed to trying to counter all the time. But who am I to sit here and critique Shevchenko with the career she’s had”.
