    Fiorot is already garnering attention as a potential title contender in a 125-pound division where champion Valentina Shevchenko is in desperate need of a test.
    said she’s not getting sucked into the hype, though. The 31-year-old is only on the verge of his 10th professional fight, and thinks a gradual climb would be best for her development.

    “I take this step-by-step the first step is I want to win this fight by knockout. It’s very important for me. If I do that and when I do that, I want a top-10 fighter.”
    =


    similar to Shev, Fiorot's stance is Thai/Karate based but we dont know about her crotch sniffing skills.
    is she the answer? what u guys think

    WMMA fighter that can punch, might be a decent prospect.

    She's definitely upper echelon... they should move her up quicker. She's killing these unranked women. Say what you want about her opposition but you don't really see the type of asswhoopings she's handed out at Flyweight in the UFC outside of Valentina.

    Valentina has had 25 fights and still seems to be improving. I'm not sure she's even peaked in terms of performance.

    Manon won't catch her up until Valentina starts to decline, which is inevitable, but could take a couple of years or more.

    Manon is smart to want to take her time, but realistically she probably gets there too soon and loses. Still, rushing her won't help.

    No argument here, although I would like to see her against Antonina first. Even if Antonina doesn't have the ranking, she has the name, and a win provides a nice story line if and when Manon faces Antonina's sister.

    Exactly, he needed a little more seasoning before facing Adesanya.

    How's the grappling though? That's the big question.

    Silva is very good on the ground, tremendous test for Fiorot.

    125 is at a point similar to where 185 was when Silva became champ.

    Very limited shallow division.

    I'd be more excited if she was in her early twenties like some of the other prospects in the division. At 31 she needs to take these steps two at a time.
