Amanda Cooper makes her UFC pay-per-view debut tonight when she takes on Cynthia Calvillo on the UFC 209 main card.
Cooper (2-2-0) competed on The Ultimate Fighter 23 last year, taking out Mellony Geugjes, Jamie Moyle and Lanchana Green before losing out to undefeated Tatiana Suarez in the finale. She is coming off a dominant unanimous decision victory over Anna Elmose at UFC Fight Night 99 this past November. As an amateur she went 5-1-0, finishing four of her victories in brutal fashion, including knockouts, TKO’s and submissions.
The 25-year-old is a dangerous opponent for anyone, she possesses the kind of knockout power which a lot of 115-pound competitors do not have. Female Ko’s have made Cooper’s first ever MMA victory available on their YouTube channel. She knocks Tori Music out cold in just eight seconds. Take a look.
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.
