Aisling Daly vs. Michelle Waterson set for UFC Hamburg

Published

on

After pleading to the UFC for a match-up at UFC Hamburg through social media, at long last Aisling Daly has got herself a fight. The announcement came at 8 am sharp Irish time today following the fans being teased last night with the notice of the announcement incoming. The Irish star has been out of action for just under a year and has been itching to get back to action. Now after her long and patient wait she is confirmed to fight at UFC Hamburg against [Insert Fighter Name].

Aisling Daly has been a pioneer of the sport in the emerald isle and is the only female Irish woman to make it to the UFC. She made her way into the UFC through the infamous reality show TUF where she was part of the historical season where the season winner was crowned the first-ever UFC women’s strawweight champion. “Ais the bash” last made her way into the octagon at UFC Dublin when she picked up a big win over Ericka Almeida. In the named bout Aisling walked out to “Zombie” by The Cranberries, an entrance that sent shivers down the spine of the viewer in what is one of the most memorable entrances in UFC history as the Irish crowd rose to the occasion and sang along creating a riveting atmosphere. She then put on a performance to back up that entrance picking up a fantastic decision win over her opponent which made the stadium erupt with cheers.

“The Karate Hottie” is making only her second Octagon appearance since signing with the organisation. In her debut, Waterson picked up a remarkable submission victory over Angela Magana. She is also the former Invicta FC atomweight champion, prior to joining the UFC she dominated that division before returning to strawweight to sign on with the UFC.

Aisling has promised to bring the fight and hopefully the atmosphere with that to UFC Hamburg in what is expected to be a phenomenal fight. This will be a very big fight for both women as they look to break into the rankings with a win here. If any of their UFC bouts to date are anything to go by this will surely be an outstanding fight and a potential fight of the night.

The current line-up for UFC Hamburg is as follows:

Heavyweight: Andrei Arlovski vs. Josh Barnett
Light Heavyweight: Alexander Gustafsson vs. Jan Błachowicz
Light Heavyweight: Ryan Bader vs. Ilir Latifi
Lightweight: Nick Hein vs. Tae Hyun Bang
Welterweight: Jessin Ayari vs. Emil Weber Meek
Welterweight: Peter Sobotta vs. Nicolas Dalby
Heavyweight: Jarjis Danho vs. Christian Colombo
Middleweight: Scott Askham vs. Jack Hermansson
Lightweight: Rustam Khabilov vs. Reza Madadi

Ovince Saint Preux Steps in to Face Corey Anderson at UFC 217

Published

on

UFC 217 just got even more interesting. Earlier this week, Patrick Cummins pulled out of his light heavyweight matchup with Corey Anderson due to a Staph infection. Corey “Overtime” Anderson was not happy with his opponents decision, even calling out his opponent on Instagram asking how Cummins could, “call it quits so far from fight night”.

The UFC left Anderson on the card, and he found an opponent through the magic of Twitter. Ovince Saint Preux tweeted out directly to Anderson stating:

It didn’t take long for Anderson to respond agreeing to the fight, tagging Mick Maynard and Dana White in his response.

Only a few short hours later, the fight announcement came from the official UFC twitter account.

 

This top 10 Light Heavyweight matchup should add to an already amazing card coming in November at Madison Square Garden. Saint Preux is coming off of back to back wins both due to the very rare von flue choke, he finds himself ranked #7th in the latest edition of the 205-pound rankings. Corey “Overtime” Anderson is 4-2 in his last 6 fights, but is coming off a brutal first round knockout loss to Jimi Manuwa in March.

With such a exciting fight added to this card, what do you see happening November 4th?  Will Corey Anderson bounce back and look to jump into the top 5 of the rankings, or will Ovince Saint Preux go for a third straight von flue choke? Let us know.
