Former King of the Cage (KOTC) atomweight champion Andy Nguyen makes her highly anticipated return to competition at this Saturday’s ‘KOTC: Mercenaries 2’ event.
Nguyen (5-5) is looking to make a statement in her first KOTC appearance since losing the atomweight title to Melissa Karagianis last August. The 35-year-old is keen to challenge for the belt again, and is hoping a dominant performance on Saturday can get her there. Prior to the loss, she was undefeated with the organization, having picked up victories over Bi Nguyen, Cassie Robb and Elane Santiago.
The CrAsian’s opponent for Saturday’s 105-pound showdown will be Canada’s Katie Saull, a 30-year-old who trains out of the Winnipeg Academy of Mixed Martial Art. Saull is coming off an impressive first-round armbar win over Kelly Vilarino at this past October’s ‘KOTC: Last Stand’ event.
‘King of the Cage: Mercenaries 2’ takes place this Saturday from the WinnaVegas Casino and Resort in Sloan, Iowa, United States. The fight between Nguyen and Saull is expected to be streamed live on KOTC’s official Facebook page.
