Cage Warriors 97 is scheduled for Saturday 29 September 2018 in Cardiff, Wales. The fight that I’m most interested in is that of up and coming, rising star of UK MMA, women’s strawweight contender, Cory McKenna – who is fighting Italian, Micol DiSegni, who has a professional MMA record of 5-1.
Cory McKenna, affiliated with BKK Fighters, had an unbeaten amateur MMA career with a 7-0 record, picking up the BCMMA Amateur Championship.
After struggling to find opponents to fight her in the amateur ranks, she decided to turn professional. To help her progress with her MMA career she has been training with Team Alpha Male out in the U.S, which appears to have worked out well for her so far.
Now professional Cory McKenna is currently holding a 2-0 record. Cory McKenna’s victories coming from a very impressive and dominant performance against Maria Vittoria Colonna at Cage Warriors 91. Maria Vittoria Colonna couldn’t even manage to get back out for the second round after being completely overwhelmed by Cory McKenna.
Her second win was a much tougher split decision win over Eva Dourthe at Cage Warriors 94, which you can watch in the video below.
Cory McKenna is improving with every fight and OptimalMMA.com is predicting another win for McKenna at Cage Warriors 97. She is definitely one for MMA fans to keep an eye on as she has the potential and the determination to achieve great things in MMA.
