Grasso said this to mmajunkie.usatoday.com about her upcoming fight against Shevchenko, “This is something that’s done, that’s tradition when a very dominant champion loses for the first time. It’s out of respect, and she deserves the rematch. I’m someone who respects the rules and abides by the company’s decision. Also, for me, it’s an honor to fight her again, because we can’t forget about everything she’s done. She’s a great athlete and has done incredible things for the sport, not only on the female side but the sport overall. Her career has been great. It motivates me even more and makes me train extremely hard because I know she’s doing the same. I know that both of us are bringing entirely new games. We’re coming stronger, faster and more aggressive than the first fight. I love challenges, and this is a big challenge. I can’t say it’s going to be the same fight because I don’t know how she’s going to come out.”

For me, there is no other focus. I live only for this.”

UFC Picks

The question we have to ask is whether or not the win by Grasso was a fluke or not. If we think so, then the price on Shevchenko is a bargain at less than 2-1. If we think Grasso is capable of winning again then obviously the value is on her. I am not so sure Grasso can beat Shevchenko again, at least not now. It could be that Shevchenko is slowing down, as she is 35-years old, but I still think she has more left in her and will get revenge against Grasso on Saturday night. I’ll lay the price and take Shevchenko to win this bout.
