She's a real sweetheart isn't she? Just don't get her mad! I'll add that there's something very attractive about her accent. It's not 100% latina, there's something particularly sexy about it.

the amount of respect and inspiration I feel for and because of Alexa is truly amazing. My parents are from Mexico but they know nothing about MMA. Yesterday, I was having lunch at my moms and explained how Alexa pulled off this upset and who she was and showed them a video.. anyways, long story short Alexa inspired my mother, my sister, my brother and myself. Viva Mexico! Well deserved champ!!

ALEXA, CONGRATULATIONS, YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENT AND RESPECTFUL ATTITUDE MAKE YOU A TRUE ROLE MODEL! Hopefully you stay true to yourself and as you did not listen to people’s doubts and limitations before, do not let people’s fawning and flattery now let it go to your head... That is ALSO A BIG LESSON TO LEARN AND OBSTACLE TO OVERCOME... I GUESS YOUR WISDOM WILL ALLOW YOU TO DO SO... Responder

Being Mexican and following the sport for such a long time I honestly did not believe Grasso was going to be able to pull it off however I was still rooting and cheering for her the entire time. Before the fight I told my wife her story and her career how this was truly a David vs Goliath fight and she goddamn came through. I lost my voice from cheering and yelling so much from the instant she hopped on her back I could see Alexa was not going to yield and would indeed finish the fight.

I've been following Alexa since invicta days. When she won the belt I couldn't believe it, I was jumping out of my seat. Shes' the most wholesome sweetheart ever, and the most humble. In the past she was always dreaming of getting into the UFC and hoping to get the belt someday and FINALLY SHE'S DONE IT!!! You deserve it Alexa and a lot of people are very happy for you!

Alexa Grasso seems like a really cool person to meet. Been following her since she changed to flyweight, I always believed she was gonna get to the top and even more happier for her for going in there and submitting the reigning flyweight champion. Always letting her fight game do the talking, love Grasso always til the end and appreciate her as a person and her beautiful personality. She deserves this legitimately

So proud of Alexa Grasso for her hard work and belief. I was looking to Taila Santos to be the one to breakthrough but it was Grasso's moment to have. Now, I'm glad she can look to shut up the critics and lame MMA fans with a rematch. This is why when so many people complain sometimes to just move on from the former champion that you have to do a rematch. Not only do champions like Valentina deserve that with their title defenses but it allows the new champs to define their era and show this belt is theirs, no luck or fluke involved. These fighters don't go into their intense training camps and give their all for nothing and these "fans" are lame to think otherwise. Legit win by Grasso. Val trains for EVERYTHING and talks about it and shows it on her social media regularly as a world class martial artist. She lost. Get over it. Good on you Alexa. You deserve it all.

Very happy for Alexa, I liked her positive but humble attitude when I saw the interviews in the run up to the Shevchenko fight, she seems like such a nice person. I hadn't heard of her as I don't follow UFC that much. I watched some of her last few fights and noticed she seemed to be improving fight by fight. I can't say I expected her to win, but I definitely thought this would be a tougher fight for Shevchenko than many expected. It was so quick that she took Shevchenko's back and got the submission.
