Erin Blanchfield is rising the flyweight rankings, and has her sight on UFC gold.

Known by her nickname “Cold Blooded”, Blanchfield is fresh off a hard fought unanimous decision win over Talia Santos at UFC Singapore this 26th of August at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang.

The win set Blanchfield to a clean 6-0 record in the Octagon. Currently ranked 3rd in the flyweight division, as well as 7th in the pound for pound rankings, Blanchfield is edging close to a title shot.

I want the title shot next: Erin Blanchfield

The 125-pound belt is currently under the possession of Alexa Grasso, who shocked Valentina Shevchenko, the former long-reigning champion via 4th round submission at UFC 285 back in March.

While Grasso and Shevchenko are in conversations for a rematch, Blanchfield is aiming at the 125-pound strap and after her win over Santos, stated that she wants to face the winner of Grasso vs. Shevchenko 2.

“I’m happy to get the win… Oh, I want the title shot next,” Blanchfield told Michael Bisping during the post fight interview. “I want the winner of Alexa Grasso and Valentina Shevchenko.”

Not just with her win over Santos, Blanchfield has been keen on a title shot for quite some time, even during the UFC Singapore media day, the 24-year-old expressed similar intentions.

Whoever the champ is, I want to take that belt off of them. I know they’re rematching soon, so I’m curious to see how that goes. No matter whether it’s Alexa or Valentina or somebody else that has it, I’m gonna come get it,” Blanchfield had stated during the conference at UFC Singapore media day.
