This Saturday’s UFC on Fox 27 prelims will feature a very exciting women’s flyweight fight between Katlyn Chookagian and Mara Romero Borella.
Chookagian (9-1) will be making her return to a division she fought for before signing with the UFC. The 29-year-old feels she has been undersized at 135-pounds and believes at 125-pounds fans will get to see her true skillset. The “Blonde Fighter” owns a notable dominant 2016 victory over top-ranked UFC flyweight, Lauren Murphy. Her sole career loss is a controversial split decision to Liz Carmouche.
Romero Borella (12-4) will be making her second UFC appearance, following an impressive first-round submission win over Kalindra Faria this past October. The 31-year-old Italian is riding high on a six-fight win streak and is hoping another victory at Saturday’s event will put her closer to a potential flyweight title shot.
UFC on Fox 27 takes place this Saturday January 27 from the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States. The preliminary card featuring Chookagian vs. Romero Borella will be aired live on Fox Sports 1 from 5pm EST.
