Alexa Grasso on her performance
During the post-fight interview, Alexa Grasso spoke about the match and the outcome.
Grass also shared her thoughts on an immediate trilogy match. “I’m happy with my performance,” Grasso said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “For me, it was 3-2. The fourth and fifth were for me, but I’m not the judge, so yeah.
I’m not the judge”. Grasso said about the trilogy: “It’s an interesting question, I wouldn’t like to stop the division. There are a lot of girls fighting a lot to have this opportunity like I did, so I wouldn’t like to stop it.
But whatever the UFC says, I’m in”. After the match, Valentina Shevchenko revealed that she injured her thumb, and the x-ray reports for the injured thumb will largely dictate her next steps from here. If all goes well, it would be fair to assume that Grasso and Shevchenko could face each other for a trilogy match in December' if not they could face each other next in 2024.
