Manon Fiorot, the rising star in the UFC's flyweight division, is not just aiming for victories but a legacy akin to that of Khabib Nurmagomedov, aiming to retire without a loss in the octagon.

Fiorot's recent dominant performance against Erin Blanchfield at UFC Atlantic City showcased her skill and determination. In an interview on The MMA Hour, Fiorot expressed her confidence, stating, 

"It was an easy fight to prepare for...that was the fight you saw Saturday."

With a perfect 7-0 record under the UFC banner, Fiorot has emerged as the clear No. 1 contender in the 125-pound division. Despite the division's uncertain timeline, with a potential trilogy bout between Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko looming, Fiorot is eager to stay active and fight for a title.

"I really think I deserve that title shot, but I don’t want to wait one year and I really want to be active," Fiorot stated, highlighting her eagerness to compete and not wait on the sidelines.

Drawing inspiration from Khabib Nurmagomedov's undefeated legacy, Fiorot aims to carefully navigate her fights, ensuring victories and securing her path to a title shot. While some critics have pointed out her preference for decisions, Fiorot's strategic approach is driven by her desire to build a lasting legacy in the sport.

Looking ahead, Fiorot eyes a potential bout in the rumored UFC return to Paris in September. While her next opponent remains uncertain, Fiorot is prepared to face both Grasso and Shevchenko, recognizing the importance of defeating both champions to solidify her position in the division.

As Fiorot continues her journey in the UFC, her determination, skillset, and aspirations for an unbeaten legacy make her a formidable force in the women's flyweight division.
