Alexa Grasso vs. Vivane Araujo Booked For August 13th UFC ‘Fight Night’

Alexa Grasso will attempt to keep her rise up the flyweight division going later this year when she faces Viviane Araujo. The 125-pound talents are expected to collide at UFC’s August 13th card, per a report from MMA Fight Universe.

The bout is joining a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.

Grasso has strung together a trio of victories over the past two years. She scored her first UFC victory in her last appearance, submitting Joanne Wood in the first round with a rear naked choke in March.

She now meets Araujo, who is a tough test in the division. Araujo has been quite successful since beginning her UFC run, putting together five wins and two losses.

Araujo bounced back from a defeat in her last fight, securing a decision victory over Andrea Lee.

It was reported earlier this week that UFC is aiming to book a bantamweight fight between Marlon Vera and Dominick Cruz for their August 13th card. Here’s a projected lineup for the show:

Bout 4: Marlon Vera (21-7-1) vs. Dominick Cruz (24-3) (Bantamweight)

Bout 3: Devin Clark (13-6) vs. Azamat Murzakanov (11-0) (Light Heavyweight)

Bout 2: Gerald Meerschaert (34-15) vs. Bruno Silva (22-7) (Middleweight)

Bout 1: Alexa Grasso (14-3) vs. Vivane Araujo (11-3) (Flyweight)
