‘Our division is on fire’: Fighters react to Alexa Grasso’s win over Viviane Araujo at UFC Vegas 62


Heading into the main event of UFC Vegas 62, fans fully expected to witness the next flyweight contender emerge between Alexa Grasso and Viviane Araujo.

Grasso had yet to taste defeat since making the jump up to the 125-pound division in 2020. The Mexican champion defeated Joanne Wood in the first round at UFC Columbus. Prior to that performance, she emerged victorious over Ji Yeon Kim and Maycee Barber.

Standing opposite of her, Araujo looked to improve on her decision win over Andrea Lee at UFC Vegas 54 in May. The Brazilian had her streak of two wins ended by Katlyn Chookagian, who was challenging her for the UFC title.

But after 25 minutes of hard-fought action, it was Grasso who emerged victorious, claiming a unanimous decision victory via one-sided scores.
