Cynthia Calvillo makes her UFC debut tonight when she takes on Amanda Cooper on the UFC 209 pay-per-view main card.
Calvillo (3-0-0) made her professional debut in August 2016 knocking out Jessica Sanchez in the first round. She followed up by winning a unanimous decision over Gillian Robertson in November, before knocking out Montana Stewart in the third round in January. As an amateur she dominated the highly touted Invicta FC star, Aspen Ladd for a unanimous decision win.
The 29-year-old is tough and scrappy, much like her fellow Team Alpha Male teammate, Paige VanZant. Global Knock-out have made Calvillo’s August 2016 victory over Jessica Sanchez available on their YouTube channel for free. Check it out below.
UFC 209 takes place tonight from the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The strawweight fight between Amanda Cooper and Cynthia Calvillo will be aired live on the pay-per-view main card, beginning 10pm EST.
