Manon Fiorot Taken to Hospital Post UFC Win

Manon Fiorot's victory over Erin Blanchfield at UFC Atlantic City was impressive, but her celebration was short-lived as she was taken to a local hospital for precautionary reasons instead of attending the post-fight press conference.

In the world of MMA, fighters are often transported to hospitals after tough fights or for evaluation of potential injuries, and Fiorot's case was no different. Fortunately, sources close to Fiorot's camp confirmed that her hospital visit was just a precaution and that she was in good spirits, laughing and smiling as she underwent checks.

Fiorot's victory over Blanchfield was nothing short of dominant, with all three judges scoring the fight 50-45 in her favor. Her counter-striking game was particularly effective, allowing her to control the fight and land significant strikes on Blanchfield. Despite Blanchfield's efforts to close the distance and initiate grappling exchanges, Fiorot's strength and skill proved too much to handle.

After the fight, Fiorot wasted no time in stating her intentions to go after the flyweight title, expressing her desire to face the winner of the upcoming trilogy fight between Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko. However, the timing might not be in Fiorot's favor, as Grasso and Shevchenko are currently occupied with coaching duties for The Ultimate Fighter and their title fight is expected to take place in September.

Despite the potential wait, Fiorot's undefeated UFC record and dominant performance against Blanchfield make her a formidable contender in the flyweight division. The time off could also benefit Fiorot, allowing her to rest and recover after a grueling five-round fight and prepare for a potential title shot in the future.
