Alexa Grasso Impresses With Decision Victory in UFC Debut

Published

Grasso vs Clark

The hype train has been following Alexa Grasso ever since she debuted for the all-female promotion, Invicta Fighting Championships. Despite never winning gold there, her performances have led to the fans, media, and UFC promoter Dana White having high expectations for the young fighter if she were to ever compete in the UFC.

And then came August 11th, when the UFC announced they had signed the 23-year-old leaving many pleased with the recruit.

Grasso, fighting out of Lobo Gym in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, finally made her long anticipated UFC debut at the Arena Cuidad de Mexico, in Mexico City. Both the result, and the performance, were impressive in equal measure.

Grasso opened up the stellar main card fighting against Heather Jo Clark, a two-time UFC veteran who trains with the notable Xtreme Couture gym in Las Vegas, Nevada.

In the first three minutes of the first round, both combatants took part in the feeling out process with Clark throwing more jabs and kicks.

It wasn’t until the clock hit around the two-minute mark that Grasso let her hands loose. The Mexican began landing huge blows to her opponent and grinding her out on the cage by applying pressure in the clinch with elbows and more dirty boxing jabs.

The brawl took its toll, leaving Clark’s vision impaired. On her stool in between rounds, Clark stated to her corner she couldn’t see well before stepping out for the second round.

Both strawweights then clinched for the majority of the second round where they continued their ongoing scramble on the fence and on the ground.

By the time the final round began, the damage plastered across Clark’s face made it clear which fighter had absorbed more punishment. Grasso scored a huge takedown in the last seconds of the third round solidifying a clean sweep in the judge’s eyes for a (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) unanimous decision win.

In her post-fight interview, Grasso expressed how incredible the entire experience has been.

Following a win over 20th ranked fighter Clark, Grasso skyrockets up the 115 rankings. Michelle Waterson and Paige Van Zant are competing next month. It can be argued Grasso is surely ready for top 10 competition.
