Katlyn Chookagian

Katlyn Chookagian is entering this bout from the momentum of her back-to-back wins over Cynthia Calvillo and the more recent was with Viviane Araujo in UFC 262. Both of those matches ended in unanimous decisions. The “Blonde Fighter” is a 33-year-old fighter and she carries a 16-4 professional MMA record. 13 of her bouts came from decisions she got knocked out twice in her career. The American fighter from Jersey City has been very resilient in her matches and that made her earn most of her wins. Expect her to push Maia to the limit and will look to earn the win through the judges’ scorecards.

Jennifer Maia

Jennifer Maia is trying to keep her consistency together as she split her last four matches to two wins and two losses. Her last bout in UFC 264 against Jessica Eye was a convincing win and that ended in the hands of the judges after three full rounds. She now carries a 19-7 professional MMA record and more than half of her wins came from decisions. The last time she won via knockout was way back in October 2015 while her recent submission win was against Joanne Wood in UFC Fight Night 173 in August 2020. Expect her to bring the fight on the ground but will eventually go to a full three rounds as well.
