Mick Maynard’s Shoes: What’s next for Manon Fiorot after UFC Fight Night 226 win?

Manon Fiorot put a signature win on her resume Saturday at UFC Fight Night 226 when she spoiled the women’s flyweight debut of Rose Namajunas.

Fiorot (11-1 MMA, 6-0 UFC) added another notch to her growing unbeaten record inside the octagon by outpointing former UFC champ Namajunas (11-6 MMA, 9-5 UFC) en route to a unanimous decision at Accor Arena in Paris. “The Beast” has impressed more and more with each fight, and now she’s at the forefront of title contention.

With less than two weeks until the 125-pound belt is on the line between Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko at Noche UFC, the timeliness of Fiorot’s win was big. She’s not the only person in the mix, however, as Erin Blanchfield has a strong case of her own.

How should everything in the division play out moving forward? Watch the video above for thoughts and analysis on Fiorot’s future after UFC Fight Night 226.
