The UFC fans went into a frenzy after Alexa Grasso stunned the world by defeating Valentina Shevchenko to win the Women’s Flyweight Championship at UFC 285. The Mexican fighter defeated the former champion by submission in the fourth round. Moreover, UFC megastar Conor McGregor seemed to enjoy the fight and yelled out a two-word message for the new champion.

‘Bullet’ on the other hand was not only the former strawweight champion but also the number 1 pound-for-pound female fighter in the UFC. She controlled the match for the most part with great kicks and punches. However, Grasso hit one nasty punch that rattled the Russian. The Mexican went on to finish the match with a face-crank submission move.

‘Mystic Mac’ and Jake Gyllenhaal continued the process of filming scenes for their upcoming movie during the UFC 285 event week. Moreover, they also witnessed some of the fights, including the co-main event. McGregor seemed impressed with the Mexican fighter’s performance. He yelled out: “Viva Mexico.” A fan recorded this instance from the fight and posted it on social media.

It will clearly mean a lot for the 28-year-old Mexican UFC champion to garner the support of one of MMA’s greatest superstars in history after a commendable performance that saw her grab the win and the championship from an unstoppable ‘Bullet’. Alexa Grasso is now on a 5-fight winning streak and would look to keep that intact.
