Valentina Shevchenko vs Alexa Grasso🥊(UFC 285: Jones vs. Gane): Prediction, Odds & Betting Tips 05/03/2023 | News & Preview
Bookmaker Ratings: Prediction #1 –
Fight Result – Alexa Grasso to win
I think the odds here are 60-40 in Shevchenko’s favour. But it makes no sense to bet on her. Firstly, it’s obvious that she lacks motivation. She has held the title for a long time, she has been defending it for a long time, and she has few bright challengers. For Valentina now any fight is just another day at work. Secondly, she is already in her 35th year. That is not a critical age for some big-sized grapplers, but for a speedy puncher, it is quite tangible.
Preliminary review and match prediction for Valentina Shevchenko vs Alexa Grasso
Valentina Shevchenko: Bullet
Valentina has held the UFC belt since December 2018. During his time with the promotion, she has managed to get past Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Holly Holm, Jessica Andrade, Lauren Murphy, Taila Santos, Jennifer Maia, Katlyn Chookagian, Liz Carmouche, Juliana Pena. The last time the Kyrgyz player lost was back in 2017.
She’s now 34 years old and there aren’t many MMA targets left. “Bullet” may want to bring the number of defences up to ten, or perhaps head to featherweight for a rematch with Nunez. Shevchenko has a broad skill set. In the stand-up, we haven’t seen anyone compete with Valentina in a long time, but in the clinch and wrestling, Santos and Maia have managed it. Grasso, thanks to her youth and power, may be able to oppose the champion.

The Mexican is ranked fifth. But she was given a title fight for giving a good win streak. Over the past two years, Alexa has had wins over Ji Yeon Kim, Maycee Barber, Joanne Wood and Viviane Araujo. The last bout was a five-round contest for Grasso, which further prepared her to face off for the belt. I should also note that she beat Araujo on two cards 5-0. That’s a serious bid to at least give Shevchenko competition. The 29-year-old challenger last lost in 2019 to Carla Esparza, but it was a competitive and close fight.
Grasso is a boxer by her base. She has good twos, a good sense of distance, and good cardio. Alexa has only worked in the rack for most of her career, but now we are seeing transfers and even submissions from her. The Mexican also has a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu.
