At UFC 285 earlier this yr, Grasso defeated Shevchenko by way of a fourth-round submission (neck crank) to win the UFC flyweight title. Grasso earned a Efficiency of the Night time bonus along with her memorable victory.
Shevchenko had seven title defenses earlier than the loss. It was her first defeat within the UFC since UFC 215 on Sept. 9, 2017.
Grasso and Shevchenko will conflict once more in the primary occasion of UFC Noche on Saturday evening in Las Vegas.
