Grasso defeated Karolina Kowalkiewicz via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC 238 on Saturday in Chicago.
ANALYSIS
This was clearly the best fight of Grasso's young UFC career. She came out with strong footwork and a ton of tempo. She really turned up the volume and threw a lot more strikes than her opponent. She continued to pour it on throughout the contest and mixed up her punches and kicks really well. Kowalkiewicz has been a contender in this division, and Grasso showed that a title fight might be in her future.

Grasso will take on Karolina Kowalkiewicz in a strawweight bout at UFC 238 in Chicago on June 8.
ANALYSIS
Grasso most recently withdrew for an unknown reason from her fight against Marina Rodriguez that was scheduled for UFC on ESPN 2 in Philadelphia. Grasso is now 2-2 since joining the UFC back in 2016, but she boasts an overall record of 10-2 thanks to a dominant two-year stretch as part of Invicta FC. Kowalkiewicz, who challenged for the UFC strawweight title back in 2016, will likely be Grasso's toughest task to date.

ANALYSIS
Grasso's had the script flipped on her a little bit, as she was on the other side of this equation for an expected bout in August against Angela Hill before withdrawing due to an injury of her own.

Grasso will take on the undefeated Marina Rodriguez in a strawweight battle at UFC Fortaleza on Feb. 2, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Grasso has been on a rough stretch of late, losing two of her last three and dropping out of a scheduled bout against Angela Hill this past summer. To get the once-heralded prospect back on track, the UFC will give her an opponent with just one UFC fight (Rodriguez fought Randa Markos to a draw in September). While Grasso will seemingly enter as the betting favorite, Rodriguez will have a slight height advantage, and the Brazilian crowd behind her.
