Manon Fiorot desires title shot ‘it doesn’t matter what’ after UFC on ESPN 54 win vs. Erin Blanchfield

Manon Fiorot sees no possibility apart from a ladies’s flyweight championship battle after a one-sided show towards Erin Blanchfield in Saturday’s UFC on ESPN 54 primary occasion.

Fiorot (12-1 MMA, 7-0 UFC) secured a seventh consecutive victory to start her UFC tenure when she decisively outpointed Blanchfield (12-2 MMA, 6-1 UFC) to a unanimous decision at Boardwalk Corridor in Atlantic Metropolis, N.J.

Afterward, she made it clear that it’s title or bust going ahead.

“I fought everybody within the class – I’m prepared,” Fiorot informed Michael Bisping via an interpreter throughout her post-fight interview. “I need the title. That’s it.”

Together with her previous 5 victories coming towards Blanchfield, former champ Rose Namajunas and former title challengers Katlyn Cerminara, Jennifer Maia and Mayra Bueno Silva, there’s little argument to be made towards Fiorot’s title shot aspirations.

Timing, nevertheless, would possibly show problematic. Present champion Alexa Grasso isn’t anticipated to defend her title in a trilogy bout with Valentina Shevchenko till at the least September as a result of filming of “The Final Fighter 32,” which implies Fiorot is taking a look at an extended wait earlier than her shot materializes.

That doesn’t seem to trouble her, although. At this level, there’s just one objective remaining.

“I’ll take one or the opposite (between Grasso and Shevchenko),” Fiorot stated. “I’m prepared. It doesn’t matter what, I need my title shot.”

For now, Fiorot, 34, will revel within the glory of one other signature win towards Blanchfield.

“She was powerful, however I didn’t have any surprises,” Fiorot stated. “I used to be prepared. We didn’t go into wrestling. I didn’t take a lot damage. I’m comfortable. Every part went properly.”
