Yana Kunitskaya picked up a substantial gain at this past Saturday’s UFC Vegas 19 event and now has her sights set on vengeance as she tries to make her way up to the top of the bantamweight rankings.
Kunitskaya (14-5-) fell quick in her UFC debut again in 2018, shedding to Cris Cyborg in a headlining PPV bout for the featherweight championship. Considering the fact that that decline, the 31-yr-previous has moved down to bantamweight and has appeared completely sensational, finding up victories about the likes of Marion Reneau, Lina Lansberg, Julija Stoliarenko and most a short while ago Ketlen Vieira. In reality, the ‘Foxy’ one particular has long gone 4-1 as a UFC bantamweight, with the sole decline coming by way of a 3rd-spherical TKO to Aspen Ladd back again in 2019.
During a recent article-struggle job interview with Sherdog, Kunitskaya spoke about how her “dream fight” would be to rematch Aspen Ladd and avenge her only UFC decline at 135-pounds.
“Each and every combat is important. I was not joyful with my efficiency versus Aspen. I really feel I can do far better than that. If I could get the rematch, that would be my aspiration battle. I want to establish I can conquer any one.” claimed all through a modern chat with Sherdog.
Coming off a massive gain in excess of Ketlen Vieira at previous Saturday’s UFC Vegas 19 event, Kunitskaya is emotion on leading of the planet and suggests that in the long run she is willing to struggle any individual.
“Each individual fight is vital for me. Every struggle feels like the most important earn. If you seem at how superior she was rated, and right before every person considered she could be champion, I sense proud of myself,” she mentioned.
“I sense like I’m physically and technically organized for any person, but I normally have a state of mind concern. I’m happy of me and my staff for putting me in the ideal spot. I really feel so great that I gained this struggle in my head.” she continued.
