Alexa Grasso will leave Las Vegas as the UFC women's flyweight champion, but she didn't leave with a victory over her rival Valentina Shevchenko.

Grasso and Shevchenko battled it out in a close five-round fight that ended in a split decision draw at Noche UFC. One judge scored the contest 48-47 for the champion, one judge scored the fight 48-47 for the challenge, while a third judge scored it 47-47 with the final round scored 10-8 for Grasso.

"I think I did enough," said Shevchenko in her post-fight interview inside the Octagon. "In a fair fight, in a fair competition, victory would be mine."

In the co-main event, Jack Della Maddalena added another win over a quality opponent as he squeaked by with a split decision victory over Kevin Holland. Della Maddalena is now tied with Ian Garry for the longest active UFC win streak at welterweight with his 6th straight victory.
