Brogan Walker squared off against Juliana Miller in a three-round women’s flyweight bout that was scheduled on the main card of UFC Fight Night: Santos vs Hill. There was a big prize at stake for both the fighters as the winner would become the Ultimate Fighter flyweight champion.
The Bear who was picked second by Amanda Nunes in her team earned this opportunity by claiming two impressive unanimous decision wins. On the other hand, Miller who was coached by Pena picked up a brilliant submission win in her last fight.
Leading into this fight, there was a lot of animosity between the two flyweights and it is needless to say that fight fans were highly excited to watch this finale. Despite having a height disadvantage, Walker was the favourite to win this fight due to her opponent’s lack of experience.
