I already dreamed of fighting for the UFC belt, becoming champion and making history even before I entered the UFC, so I think I’ll be even closer to a title fight after this win over Alexa Grasso.

UFC Picks

This should be an interesting matchup between two contenders in the flyweight division. It could be that the winner of this fight is in line for a title shot. The current champion is Valentina Shevchenko and she has already beaten the fighters ranked ahead of Grasso and Arajuo.

Grasso has done really well in the division with three wins and no losses. She is now 14-3 overall in her career. Her last win over Joanne Wood in March was an impressive first round submission. This may be a tough fight for Grasso because Arajuo is underrated. She has fought some tough competition, including Katlyn Chookagian two fights back. Arajuo looked really good last time out with a unanimous decision victory over Andrea Lee.

I think the price on Grasso is simply too high, as Arajuo is very capable of winning this fight. I think there are two plays worth making, as there is definite value in taking Arajuo at a price of nearly 2-1. I also think the rounds are worth considering. I know the price is high at -200 but neither of these two fighters is a great finisher and there is a good chance the rounds go over the total.
