This Saturday’s UFC on Fox 27 prelims will feature an exciting women’s flyweight fight between Justine Kish and Ji Yeon Kim.
Kish (6-1) will be making her first appearance in the UFC’s new flyweight division, following a 2-1 run in the organization’s strawweight division which has seen her pick up victories over Nina Ansaroff and Ashley Yoder, but more recently losing a decision to Felice Herrig. The 29-year-old competed as a flyweight before joining the UFC, a division in which she was able to show more of her power and remained undefeated, picking up notable finishes over Christine Stanley and Munah Holland.
Yeon Jim (6-1-2) will also be making her first flyweight appearance following a successful run at bantamweight. She made her UFC debut last June, losing a unanimous decision to Lucie Pudilova. The 28-year-old feels she has been undersized at 135-pounds and believes she has what it takes to be a world champion when competing against smaller girls in the 125-pound division.
UFC on Fox 27 takes place this Saturday January 27 from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States. The preliminary card featuring Kish vs. Yeon Kim will be aired live on Fox Sports 1 from 5pm EST.
