The Ultimate Fighter: Grasso vs. Shevchenko – Coaching Rivalry

The upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter” is set to showcase a battle between two of the top women’s fighters in the world. UFC women’s flyweight champion Alexa Grasso and former champ Valentina Shevchenko will go head-to-head as coaches on the show, which is scheduled to premiere on June 4 on ESPN. This coaching rivalry is sure to bring a new level of intensity and excitement to the reality series.

UFC CEO Dana White made the official announcement regarding Grasso and Shevchenko’s coaching roles on the next season of “The Ultimate Fighter” via social media. The two fighters are currently in Las Vegas for filming preparations, which are set to begin in the upcoming week. It has been revealed that the 32nd season of the reality series will showcase fighters from the featherweight and middleweight divisions, with the winners earning a coveted UFC contract.

Following the conclusion of the show, Grasso and Shevchenko are expected to face each other in a highly-anticipated matchup. While the bout has not been officially scheduled yet, the most likely scenario is for the fight to take place at UFC 306 on September 14 at the Sphere in Las Vegas. This event will coincide with Mexican Independence Day and is the perfect stage for the potential trilogy fight between the two fierce competitors.

Grasso, the UFC’s first Mexican-born women’s champion, has been on an impressive run with six consecutive wins. She claimed the flyweight title by defeating Shevchenko via submission at UFC 285 in March 2023. Moving up from strawweight in 2020, Grasso has proven herself as a dominant force in the division. On the other hand, Shevchenko, with a record of 23-4-1, boasts a remarkable legacy with seven successful title defenses at flyweight. Despite having her nine-fight winning streak snapped by Grasso, the fighter from Kyrgyzstan is highly regarded as one of the greatest women’s MMA fighters of all time.

The coaching rivalry between Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko on the upcoming season of “The Ultimate Fighter” is set to captivate audiences around the world. With their impressive fighting backgrounds and fierce competitive spirits, the showdown between these two talented athletes is bound to be nothing short of spectacular.
