UFC on ESPN+ 25 takes place this Saturday February 15, 2020, from the Santa Ana Star Center in Rio Rancho, New Mexico, United States.
An exciting bantamweight fight features on the preliminary card between TUF 28 winner, Macy Chiasson, and short-notice promotional newcomer, Shanna Young.
Chiasson (5-1-0) will be looking to rebound from her first professional career loss after losing a unanimous decision to Lina Lansberg at this past September’s UFC on ESPN+ 18 event. Prior to the defeat, Chiasson was 3-0 with the UFC, stoppage victories over Pannie Kianzad, Gina Mazany and Sarah Moras. The 28-year-old was coached by Kelvin Gastelum on TUF 28 and picked up finishes over Larissa Pacheco and Leah Letson throughout her time on the show.
Young (7-2-0) accepted the UFC call-up against Chiasson on just five-days notice. The 28-year-old is an Invicta FC, King of the Cage and Valor Fighting Challenge veteran who is coming off an impressive unanimous decision victory over Maiju Suotama. She owns notable career victories over reigning Invicta FC featherweight champ Pam Sorenson and PFL lightweight Moriel Charneski.
