Two young strawweights who are at their start of their promising UFC careers grace the co-main. They only have one loss between them and a win will solidify a place in the top ten rankings.

Alexa Grasso bounced back from a controversial decision loss to Felice Herrig with a tight decision win of her own against Randa Markos in her last fight.

Tatiana Suarez has looked just as impressive so far in her career; she is unbeaten and emerged on the scene after competing and winning The Ultimate Fighter 23. She has since pushed her record to 5-0 and hardly been tested due to an incredibly strong wrestling game.


Grasso is very well-rounded but her takedown defence has to be on point to inflict any kind of offence. She has phenomenal movement but it remains to be seen whether it will be enough to prevent Suarez from having her way with the Mexican.

Suarez has represented her country in wrestling and when this skill is at such a level it is often the deciding factor in the result. Grasso will put up a good fight but Suarez is likely to grapple her way to a decision.

Winner: Suarez via Decision
