Hump Day

FHM Nation, we finally found a female fighter who can give Ronda Rousey a run for her money...at least in the looks department.

Meet Alexa Grasso, a 21-year-old strawweight (115 lbs) fighter from Mexico. She's said to have the kind of knockout power that female fighters don't normally possess, which explains why she's won four of her fights via knockout.

Like Ronda, Alexa has yet to taste defeat in her professional career, which only began in 2012. She first decided to make a living as a fighter after she attended an MMA event with her uncle, who now happens to be her coach.

"I was amazed to see that such beautiful and strong women could punch and kick that way against a larger rival," she says of the first women's match she ever saw. "I saw the beauty of the sport and that women are just as capable as men to fight."

While Ronda is notorious for her armbars, Alexa has made a career out of landing one-punch knockouts. Just ask Lupita Hernandez, whom Alexa took out in 12 seconds, or Sandra del Ricon, who went down in 15.

But despite her aggressive fighting style, Alexa says that she's actually the shy type. "I've always been very quiet and dedicated myself to studying. I think school is a very nice place. My favorite subject was natural sciences. And in college, to this point it has been morphology."

Alexa, who once worked as a hostess and a secretary, says her parents support her 100 percent. "My dad is always the happiest," she reveals. "He loves the idea of me being a fighter, and supports me with even the simplest things from helping with my uniform to drying my tears and saying beautiful words when I'm in the last weeks of preparation."

So what are the chances of her and Ronda actually meeting in the cage? Well, Alexa's currently signed to Women's MMA promotion Invicta FC, which happens to have strong ties with the UFC. She's going to have to move up a weight class though, since Ronda's fighting at bantamweight (135 lbs).

Alexa will be looking to continue her undefeated streak when she faces Mizuki Inoue at Invicta FC 11 next Sunday, February 28 (Manila time). Let's wish her the best of luck!
