Alexa Grasso shocks the world by becoming the new women’s flyweight champion at UFC 285. Going into the fight, Valentina Shevchenko was the fan favorite due to her past record but things came out way different. From the start of the fight, both Shevchenko and Grasso kept the fight on their feet and Grasso was getting comfortable.

During the exchanges, Grasso was gradually connecting more frequent shots. This forced the champion to change her strategy and go for takedowns which she did. Shevchenko dominated Grasso on the ground and Grasso was struggling with her takedown defense. 

As the fight proceeded, Shevchenko was ahead in the points and was expected to sail through the fight to successfully defend her belt. However, in the fourth round Shevchenko missed a spinning back kick and Grasso was quick to get a rear naked hold. It was incredible and the arena went wild as Shevchenko was forced to tap out.
