The bout was originally scheduled to take place on Aug. 13, but an undisclosed injury ultimately forced Grasso to withdraw from the card.

Out of fight next week
August 3, 2022
Grasso (undisclosed) is out of her fight against Viviane Araujo on Aug. 13 , Carlos Contreras Legaspi of ESPN Deportes reports.

Taking on Viviane Araujo in August
June 3, 2022
Grasso will fight Viviane Araujo on the UFC's Aug. 13 card, reports.
After a roller-coaster start to Grasso's career, she has seemed to have found her form recently, winning three straight contests, including her first via submission last time out versus Joanne Wood. Araujo has one of her last four bouts as well, so this could be a pretty good fight between two top-10 fighters in the flyweight division. Grasso stands an inch taller than her opponent but will yield an inch of reach.
Strong run continues
March 26, 2022
Grasso defeated Joanne Wood via submission (rear-naked choke) at 3:57 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Columbus, Ohio.
It's the first submission win of Grasso's career and her first stoppage win in nine UFC bouts. Alexa is primarily known as an undersized, technical striker, but some awkward exchanges along the fence allowed her to get Wood to the mat on a couple occasions, the second of which put her in perfect position to clamp on the rear-naked choke that ended the fight. Grasso's ceiling would appear to be somewhat limited because she lacks both power and overall athleticism, but she's deceptively strong and exceedingly durable. A winner of three straight and four of five, Grasso probably has enough in the intangible department to help cover some potential holes in her game.
Returning to Octagon in March
January 12, 2022
Grasso is scheduled to face Joanne Wood (hand) in a flyweight fight March 26 at the UFC's event in Columbus, Alexander K. Lee of reports.
