UFC 258’s co-main event was a pretty entertaining match between Alexa Grasso and Maycee Barber. While Barber clearly had a size and strength advantage, along with pretty insane hype, Grasso proved to be the more technical fighter in just about every facet in MMA.
Grasso hurt Barber on the feet on multiple occasions, and won most of the clinch and ground exchanges as well. Barber had a nice moment in the third round, but it wasn’t enough to win her a decision.
