 Liana “Mgeli” Jojua (7-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC)

Flyweight (125lbs): 0-0 (UFC) Making UFC debut on July 15th

Bantamweight (135lbs): 0-1 (UFC)

Liana is moving down to 125lbs for her sophomore fight under the UFC promotional banner. The 25-year-old lost her debut in the UFC last year after being finished in the women’s bantamweight division by Sarah Moras. Jojua stands at 5’4″ with a 62″ reach and carries a lot of muscle mass on her frame. Jojua has actually had fights at bantamweight and even featherweight during her professional MMA career, though it was years ago. Regardless, Liana is a fighter to watch on the scale and to pay extra close attention to on fight night.
