Guadalajara contender, Alexa Grasso continues her surge through the flyweight ranks since her divisional bow — landing a quickfire opening round rear-naked choke win over Joanne Wood in the co-main event of UFC Columbus tonight.

Grasso, who entered to night’s co-headliner off the back of a pair of flyweight victories against both Ji Yeon Kim, and the highly-touted, Maycee Barber, managed to capitalize on a tie-up in the clinch following a spinning strike attempt from Wood, quickly taking the Scotland native’s back.
