Vanessa Demopoulos is gearing up for her next big fight. She’s stepping into the Octagon for the seventh time. Her opponent? Emily Ducote. This showdown is happening at a UFC Fight Night Event on May 18, right in the heart of Las Vegas at the UFC Apex.
So, who spilled the beans on this matchup? MMAjunkie.com, that’s who. And guess what? They’re keeping us on our toes because other fights for the night are still under wraps.
Now, let’s talk about Demopoulos for a sec. She’s coming off a win, folks. A unanimous decision victory against Kanako Murata last October. And she’s been on fire in the UFC, winning 4 out of her last 5 fights. The only hiccup? A loss to Karolina Kowalkiewicz. But hey, that was a catchweight bout at UFC Fight Night 223. No biggie.
On the flip side, Emily Ducote’s not just showing up; she’s looking to start a winning streak. She just clinched a unanimous decision win over Ashley Yoder at UFC Fight Night 230. But it’s not been all roses. Before that, she faced a couple of tough losses against Angela Hill and Lupita Godinez. Still, she kicked off her UFC journey with a win against Jessica Penne from Alliance MMA.
So, yeah. This fight? It’s shaping up to be something special. Can’t wait to see how it all goes down on May 18. Stay tuned, folks.
