    She has a big support even in Dubai since many filipinos work there. It’s unfortunate that this matchup is the first match on the stacked card. This time round, she is facing a tougher, more physically stronger opponent. Being based in the US should give her many chances to train mma and really that’s key in this matchup. It’s down to who is mote rounded. Looking forward to it. This aside, a history has been made by mmaweekly finally actually writing an article about an org outside of US. Would they run an article for the fights review?
