Micol di Segni picked up a huge win at this past Saturday’s Cage Warriors 97 event, defeating hometown favorite, Cory McKenna, via split decision in Cardiff, Wales.
The victory is a significant one for Segni (6-1), considering it was both her Cage Warriors and UFC Fight Pass debut. Cage Warriors of course is Europe’s number-one MMA organization, with the likes of Conor McGregor, Michael Bisping, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and many more fighting for the promotion before becoming UFC world champions.
Di Segni is a 30-year-old who was born in Rome, Italy. The promising prospect splits her time training at the Gloria Fight Center in Rome, and the Jacksonwink MMA gym in Albuquerque, New Mexico, along with the likes of Holly Holm, Jon Jones and Michelle Waterson. As well as competing in MMA, Di Segni is also a glamour model under the name Eden VonHell.
The Italian’s most recent victory of McKenna puts her on a five-fight win streak, which includes three impressive finishes. With the organization’s strawweight title currently vacant, one can only assume Di Segni has put herself in the running for a shot at the belt.
Cage Warriors 97 took place on Saturday 29 September from the Ice Arena Wales in Cardiff, Wales. The main card featuring McKenna vs. Di Segni was aired live on UFC FIGHT PASS from 4pm EST.
