On this Wednesday’s edition of ‘The Ultimate Fighter: Heavy Hitters’ (TUF 28), Leah Letson advanced to the semi-finals of the featherweight tournament after defeating Bea Malecki via unanimous decision.
Letson (4-1), also known as ‘Nidas’, is a 26-year-old who trains at the Pura Vida BJJ/MMA gym in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She is on an impressive four-fight win streak, with the sole loss being a questionable split decision in her pro debut. In her most recent showing back in 2017, Letson knocked out Elizabeth Phillips in the first-round of their Invicta FC 21 encounter.
Also joining Letson in the semi-finals of TUF 28 are Pannie Kianzad and Julija Stoliorenko. Kianzad earned the unanimous decision win over Katharina Lehner to advance, whilst Julija Stoliorenko submitted Marciea Allen in the first-round. The winner of Larissa Pacheco and Macy Chiasson, airing in two weeks, will complete the semi-final lineup.
