UFC Presents Alexa Grasso With Special ‘Tribe Belt’

Reigning UFC women’s flyweight champion Alexa Grasso was presented with a special belt ahead of her upcoming title defense this weekend.

The UFC honored Grasso, the first Mexican female champion in the promotion, with a unique ‘Tribe Belt’ that celebrates all the consecration of all the fights defeated inside and outside of the Octagon.

The Taller Jacobo y María Ángeles is pleased to present the intervention of the Tribe Belt #1 that seeks to exalt the leadership of those women who, among the adversities of the territory, make their way to face the adversities of life.

This design retakes elements of the Mexican pre-Hispanic culture in the heart of the Mixtec/Zapotec cultures, in which values are abstracted in a design that as a memento shows the long road to triumph.

Dexterity, courage, ability and discipline are symbolisms through the iconography of the workshop as the house; protection, the fish; respect, person; people, butterfly; happiness, wind; movement and rattle; maximum power in a bid to materialize the arduous path of a champion.

The Tribe Belt #1 seeks to exalt the courage and determination of the leader who puts her abilities and skills to the test; but just as important, to materialize the responsibility that becomes in a belt who the winner puts on her shoulder as weight of her memories, tears and glories.

Grasso will be defending her title for the first time against the fighter she won it from, Valentina Shevchenko, earlier this year. The bout headlines the Noches UFC event live on ESPN+ from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

This card is of added importance to Grasso, as it takes place on Mexican Independence Day.
