On Saturday, May 4th, UFC makes its return to Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. In their main event headliner for the preliminary card, TUF 28 champion and prospect, Macy Chiasson, will be moving down to 135 again, to take on Sarah Moras.
Chiasson holds a professional record of 4-0, with a UFC record of 1-0. She has 1 KO, 2 submissions, and 1 decision. She excelled all through The Ultimate Fighter 28 and went on to win the TUF finale against Pannie Kianzad.
Chiasson is a very game fighter and an absolute force in the 145 and 135-pound divisions. And she will be having her next moment against Moras on Saturday.
What does this mean for Macy Chiasson’s MMA career? Well, it means literally everything. This is a huge opportunity for Chiasson to showcase her skills and become a relevant name in the sport. Especially in a time where there aren’t too many stand-out names in the women’s divisions, I believe Chiasson can capitalize on this moment in a big way.
If Chiasson goes in there and scores a big win over Sarah Moras in Ottawa, her next stop will be another headliner. I could see her getting a win here and moving on to headline a Fight Night card in the near future. That would be a huge jump, I mean, we really haven’t seen any female fighter headline a Fight Night card in a long time. I believe Chiasson can be the one to do it.
If not that, the UFC may even want to have her on another one of the PPV prelim cards in the future. Chiasson is a likable, dominant female fighter who is finding great success at 145 and now trying to make her name in the 135-pound division. If all goes well for her on Saturday, we may be seeing more of her in 2019 and beyond.
The sky is the limit for Chiasson.
