Featherweight bout between Felicia Spencer & Danyelle Wolf set for UFC Fight Night on May 22

A featherweight contest between Felicia Spencer and Danyelle Wolf has been set for the upcoming UFC Fight Night 192 event on May 22.

Felicia Spencer is a former Invicta FC featherweight champion.

Spencer (8-2-0) will be fighting for the first time since losing to Amanda Nunes via unanimous decision in a UFC featherweight championship match last June. The 30-year-old is considered the best 145-pound fighter on the UFC’s roster, other than Nunes, following dominant victories over the likes of Megan Anderson and Zarah Fairn Dos Santos. Also known as the ‘Feenom’, Spencer is a former Invicta FC featherweight champion who picked up wins over Pam Sorenson and Helena Kolesnyk during her time with the organization. She notably went three rounds with Cris Cyborg in 2019, losing a hard-fought unanimous decision.

Wolf (1-0-0) will be making her UFC debut after defeating Taneisha Tennant on an episode of Dana White’s Contender Series last September to earn a contract. The 37-year-old may have limited MMA experience, however her experience in combat sports is certainly not lacking. Winning multiple US National Boxing Championships, Wolf is a highly accomplished professional boxer who has a 30-14-0 record in the sport.

  1. love Wolfe and Spencer, but this is gonna be ugly and over within 2 or 3 minutes ! Danyelle shouldn’t be in there with Felicia yet. Pretty ridiculous !

  2. Agree with Anticereal. This might be the most nonsensical pairing the UFC have made in quite some time, if not ever. The idea of this was something of a punchline amongst the fight fans I chat with, but now it’s actually happening, ugh… 😓
