Tonight’s UFC 218 early preliminary card will feature an exciting strawweight bout when Amanda ‘ABC’ Cooper takes on “Your Majesty”, Angela Magana.
Cooper (2-3-0) was coached by Claudia Gadelha on 2016’s The Ultimate Fighter 23, coming second-place to Tatiana Suarez. Since the show she has gone 1-1, picking up a unanimous decision win over Anna Elmose, but then losing a first-round submission to top contender, Cynthia Calvillo. Nine months on and the 26-year-old looks to rebound from the loss and make a statement to the strawweight division tonight.
Also known as ‘Your Majesty’, Magana (11-8-0) is a veteran of the sport who has been fighting since the year of 2007. She is currently on a four-fight losing streak when it comes to professional competition, dropping fights to some of the toughest competitors in the world including Michelle Waterson, Tecia Torres and Jessica Eye. Despite the losses, Magana has enjoyed a lot of success, with notable victories over Jessica Aguilar, Barb Honchak and Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc.
“UFC 218: Holloway vs. Aldo 2” takes place this tonight from the Little Caesars Arena in Detroit, Michigan, United States. The early preliminary card featuring Cooper vs. Magana will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass from 6:15pm EST.
