Alexa Grasso is the UFC women’s flyweight champion and is regarded by many as one of the most attractive female fighters in the UFC right now. Having started her professional MMA journey in December 2012, Grasso has made a name for herself in the fight world. Her brilliant MMA record of 16-3 shows how dominant she has been in the flyweight division of mixed martial arts.
In March, Grasso sent shockwaves through the MMA community by securing a submission victory over Valentina Shevchenko in the fourth round of their flyweight title clash at UFC 285. The latter had been the 125-pound champion since 2018 before this huge upset and is also one of the greatest fighters in the UFC.
However, this was not the only incident that caught the eyes of the fans at UFC 285. A video has been doing the rounds on social media recently from the weigh-in event before the fight night that happened earlier this year.
In the video, Alexa Grasso was seen going to weigh herself a day before her title fight. However, what is interesting here is that UFC middleweight contender Dricus du Plessis and bantamweight fighter Cameron Saaiman were caught checking out Grasso by the fans.
The two fighters were present at the weigh-in event as they were also fighting on the same card. du Plessis was up against Derek Brunson in the prelim card of UFC 285 and Saaiman took on Mana Martinez in the early prelims.
Dricus du Plessis and Cameron Saaiman can’t keep their eyes away from Alexa Grasso
While UFC fighters Dricus du Plessis and Cameron Saaiman could not help staring at Grasso, fans were quick enough to give their reactions to this awkward moment. Pointing out du Plessis’ African heritage, a fan wrote, “Dricus heard women like African men”. Another fan defended the two fighters by writing, “I can’t blame them.”
Appreciating flyweight champion Alexa Grasso’s beauty, a fan wrote, “No one can argue; she is a beautiful woman. Boys will be boys”. Another YouTuber user took help from MMA terminology to come up with a cheeky comment: “Pound 4 pound cutest women.” Some fans even defended the two fighters by pointing out that they were probably exhausted after the weigh-cuts and could not help but notice the beautiful Alexa Grasso.
Grasso is once again set to take on Shevchenko on Sept. 16 at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas, Nevada. Who do you think will emerge as the winner in their much-awaited rematch? Tell us in the comments!
