Last Saturday at UFC Vegas 4, two Invicta FC standouts made their UFC debuts.
On the prelims, Kay Hansen (7-3) submitted former Invicta FC atomweight champ Jinh Yu Frey (9-5) in the third round via armbar.
So, what’s next for the fighters of UFC Vegas 4?
Prior to the fight ending, Frey was looking strong in her move up to 115 pounds. Her striking was sharp and she didn’t appear to be at any major size disadvantages. In her next fight, Frey should face a returning Jessica Penne. Penne, a former atomweight champion in her own right, has not fought since 2017 due to an ongoing USADA case. With USADA issues in the rear view, a fight against Frey is an interesting and important matchup for both. If Penne is not available, the UFC experienced Hannah Cifers would make a stiff test for Frey,
Hansen scored the biggest win of her career on Saturday– netting a $50k POTN bonus for her efforts. Hansen is still very young in her career and has a lot of room to grow, but at only 20-years-old, Hansen is a very exciting prospect. In her next outing, she should face TUF alum Emily Whitmire. Whitmire, a rangy wrestler, could test Hansen’s wrestling and submission ability as she continues to grow.
