Tonight’s Cage Warriors 97 event features an exciting strawweight fight on the main card when Cory McKenna returns to take on Micol di Segni.
McKenna (2-0) is one of the most promising prospects coming out of the United Kingdom. The 18-year-old was undefeated as an amateur before turning pro, picking up seven dominant victories in the process. Since turning pro, McKenna has been exclusively competing for Cage Warriors, picking up a first-round TKO over Maria Vittoria Colonna, as well as a decision over Eva Dourthe. McKenna splits her time training out of the Tillery Combat MMA Academy in her home country, as well as the highly-acclaimed Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, California.
Di Segni (5-1) makes her Cage Warriors debut following an impressive four-fight win streak which includes three finishes, two knockouts and one first-round submission. The 30-year-old Italian splits her time training at the Gloria Fight Center in Rome, and the Jacksonwink MMA gym in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Cage Warriors 97 takes place tonight from the Ice Arena Wales in Cardiff, Wales. The main card featuring McKenna vs. Di Segni will be aired live on UFC FIGHT PASS from 4pm EST.
