SHANA DOBSON – O’Neill spoiled Dobson’s strategies of placing collectively a acquire streak subsequent her impressive August victory in excess of Mariya Agapova. “Danger” now finds herself 2-4 in the promotion. At 4-5 general, Dobson is in crucial want of a gain really should her subsequent fight be in the UFC.

CASEY O’NEILL – “King” O’Neill showed some guarantee in her debut, and at only 23-years-aged, she has lots of time to develop and hone her expertise. There are nonetheless some fighters searching to uncover their footing in the flyweight division– maybe a matchup in opposition to Diana Belbita or Luana Carolina can make feeling.
KETLEN VIEIRA – Vieira was on the erroneous side a unanimous determination on Saturday. The reduction will not set her also far back in the rankings contemplating Kunitskaya was ranked correct at the rear of her, nonetheless, it will derail any immediate designs of a title shot for the Brazilian.

YANA KUNITSKAYA – Kunitskaya’s showcase gain more than Vieira in the co-principal celebration is the largest get in her UFC vocation to day. Not only did it thrust her into the division’s best five, but it also sets her up for a further huge prospect.
