Invicta FC contenders Jinh Yu Frey, Kay Hansen to debut at UFC on ESPN 12

Jinh Yu Frey

Two Invicta FC alumnae will make their debut in the UFC octagon as they face each other at UFC Fight Night on June 27.

Jinh Yu Frey (9-4) has been on the Invicta roster since 2014. The 35-year-old is a two-time atomweight champion in the promotion. In her last fight, she beat Ashley “Smashley” Cummins at Invicta FC 39. The fight was originally scheduled to be a title defense for Frey. Unfortunately, she missed weight for the bout which saw her stripped of her title. She did manage; however, to prevent Cummins from becoming champion. Frey won the bout by unanimous decision leaving the title vacant.

Kay Hansen (6-3) is a 20-year-old Invicta strawweight. She began her Invicta career in 2017 with a submission win over Emilee King (4-3). Hansen is on a 3-fight win streak. Her streak includes victories over Carolina Jimenez, Nicolle Caliari and Liana Pirosin. Most recently, Hansen headlined as the co-event against Magdaléna Šormová at Phoenix Series 1.
