In a commanding performance at UFC Atlantic City, Manon Fiorot showcased why she's a force to be reckoned with in the women's flyweight division. With a resounding victory over Erin Blanchfield, Manon Fiorot made it clear that her sights were set on one thing: a shot at the women's flyweight championship.

Fiorot's (12-1) win over Blanchfield (12-2) marked her seventh consecutive victory in the UFC, solidifying her position as a top contender in the division. In her post-fight interview with Michael Bisping, Fiorot left no room for doubt about her intentions, stating, 

"I fought everyone in the category – I’m ready. I want the title. That’s it."

Her impressive record speaks for itself, with victories over top contenders such as Rose Namajunas, Katlyn Cerminara, Jennifer Maia, and Mayra Bueno Silva. Fiorot's dominance inside the Octagon has garnered widespread recognition, making her title-shot aspirations more than justified.

While the timing may pose a challenge, with current champion Alexa Grasso tied up in a trilogy bout with Valentina Shevchenko until at least September, Fiorot remains undeterred. 

"I will take one or the other (between Grasso and Shevchenko). I’m ready. No matter what, I want my title shot," Fiorot affirmed.

The prospect of a long wait for her title shot doesn't faze Fiorot, who is determined to achieve her ultimate goal. For now, she basks in the glory of yet another impressive victory. 

"She was tough, but I didn’t have any surprises," Fiorot remarked about Blanchfield. "I was ready. Everything went well."

As Fiorot's star continues to rise in the women's flyweight division, her title ambitions serve as a testament to her skill, determination, and unwavering focus on championship gold.
