After over a year of speculation, Invicta FC strawweight Alexa Grasso has been signed by the UFC and will make her debut November 5th at UFC Fight Night: dos Anjos vs Ferguson in Mexico City, Mexico.
Fresh off her dominant win over Jodie Esquibel at Invicta FC 18, Grasso will put her undefeated 8-0 record up against Heather Jo Clark. The card will also feature the TUF Latin America 3 Finale as well.
With the return of Cain Velasquez at UFC 200 and as Yair Rodriquez continues to make his rise in the featherweight division, Grasso comes into the UFC at the perfect time to represent Latin fighters. And with a few wins, Grasso could easily find herself in title contention within her first year in the UFC.
