As it was expected, Irene aldana (12-6 MMA, 5-4 UFC) plans big things for what’s next. After her last fight lost to Holly Holm, the Mexican fighter sets her eyes on Yana Kunitskaya, whom he will face on July 10 at UFC 264. After his defeat, all he is looking for is to triumph and reach the opportunity for the title. At least those were his last words to MMA Junkie.
Starting, Aldana He commented, “Fortunately, I got a top-five fight. It is a good opportunity to make a good comeback with a very complete fighter like Yana. I didn’t have the best fight in my last outing. It was the worst performance I had in that fight against Holly. I think that UFC He took into account the way I lost And I don’t want to take anything away from Holly, I know I fought the best version of her.
“They didn’t knock me out, they didn’t subdue me, and there was a combination of situations that didn’t help the cause and only made everything worse. I had the foot fracture, I had COVID-19 before the fight and I don’t think I made a full recovery because I felt some lingering issues. I think that UFC It takes all of that into account, plus the previous fights I had, ”the Mexican also explained.

What’s more, Irene He said, “I think if you look at all the previous fights and then compare them to the performance against Holly, you can see that something was wrong with me. I think if I have a good performance, a dominant presentation and a convincing victory, I think I can get back on the road to a possible title fight. The division is very close in the competition at the top because many of the top five girls have already fought for the belt.
I think I can get that place back, but first this fight, and we’ll take it from there. If I win this fight, and I have a convincing win, and maybe I have another win after that against a good opponent, I think I can raise my hand again to ask for that title shot. It could be this year, why not? ” Irene aldana, who seeks to recover in the division.
