A dominant performance over five rounds against Erin Blanchfield in the main fight of UFC Atlantic City, last Saturday (30), accredited Manon Fiorot for a title fight in the flyweight category (up to 56,7 kg), and the Frenchwoman seems to be willing to wait as long as necessary to fight for the category title.

Although victories over Mayra Sheetara, Jennifer maia, Katlyn Cerminara, Rose namajunas e Erin Blanchfield are more than enough arguments to justify the merit of the title fight, the 'timing' is not exactly ideal for Manon Fiorot.

That's because the champion Alexa grasso and the former champion Valentina Shevchenko are scheduled as coaches for the next edition of 'The Ultimate Fighter', which should precede the trilogy between the two for the belt. Still, Fiorot is willing to wait for the opportunity.

“I faced everyone in the category. I'm ready. I want the title and that's it. I will face one or the other (between Grasso and Shevchenko). I want my title shot”, he declared in an interview still on top of the Octagon.


As for the dominant performance against the favorite Erin Blanchfield, the Frenchwoman guarantees that she was prepared for everything that the American could present in the Octagon.

“She was tough, but I didn’t have any surprises. I was ready. We didn't get into wrestling. I didn't take much damage. I’m happy and everything went well,” she concluded.
