Grasso had yet to taste defeat since making the jump up to the 125-pound division in 2020. In her most recent outing, the Mexican phenom dispatched Joanne Wood with a first-round submission at UFC Columbus. Prior to that performance, she emerged victorious over Ji Yeon Kim and Maycee Barber.
Standing opposite of her, Araújo looked to improve on her decision win over Andrea Lee at UFC Vegas 54 in May. Prior to that win, the Brazilian saw her two-fight win streak snapped at the hands of one-time UFC title challenger Katlyn Chookagian.
But after 25 minutes of hard-fought action, it was Grasso who emerged victorious, claiming a unanimous decision victory via one-sided scores.

Viviane Araújo tentou de tudo, mas a noite realmente foi de Grasso. boxe alinhado e eficiente nos contra-golpes. Acredito que ela estará em breve numa disputa de título.— Luiz Besouro (@BesouroRFT) October 16, 2022
Grande luta, espero que Viviane dê a volta por cima e parabenizo a atleta mexicana! #UFCnocombate
50-45? If you gave round 1 to Grasso, how didn’t you give round 4 to Araujo? #UFCVegas62— Ryan Quinn (@thecornermanmma) October 16, 2022
