Mexican strawweight prospect Alexa Grasso will make her Octagon debut in friendly territory when she faces Heather Clark in Mexico City on Nov. 5.
Indiscutido.com first reported the booking on Thursday. UFC Fight Night takes place at Mexico City Arena and is expected to headlined by a key lightweight encounter between Rafael dos Anjos and Tony Ferguson. The card will also include the finals of “The Ultimate Fighter: Latin America 3.”
The 23-year-old Grasso is unbeaten in eight professional outings, with four triumphs by way of knockout or technical knockout. She won four bouts during a nearly two-year stint in Invicta FC, including victories over Jodie Esquibel and Mizuki Inoue.
A competitor on Season 20 of “The Ultimate Fighter,” Clark outpointed Bec Rawlings at the reality show’s finale in December 2014 but dropped a decision to Karolina Kowalkiewicz in her most recent Octagon appearance on May 8.
