Feature UFC 208 needs Katlyn Chookagian. Time to start the #BlondeFighterToBrooklyn movement! by Daniel Yanofsky January 7, 2017 February 11 is almost here. The UFC’s second biggest show in New York (third overall) since the sport was legalized will emanate from The Barclays Center. UFC 208 has its main event, along with many interesting fights scheduled. It feels like its missing something though. Someone close to Team Double G is not on the card, and we believe that should change. Katlyn Chookagian should be fighting on the UFC 208 card. “The Blonde Fighter” (8-1) is no stranger to fighting in New York. The 28-year old New Jersey native became the first MMA fighter to ever kick off a card at Madison Square Garden during UFC 205. While she lost to Liz Carmouche, she impressed well enough to show she belongs. Her previous bouts have been against fighters ranked above her, something she lives for. My Main Event co-host Kristine Haugsjaa interviewed the former amateur kickboxer and boxer before UFC 205. “The Blonde Fighter” loves fighting against those ranked above her, stating that it’s a way to work her way up the ladder in the UFC. Now, she wants another opponent ASAP. httpss://twitter.com/blondefighter/status/815048198037258240 For months, Kristine and I have been campaigning for her to make the Brooklyn card, via the hashtag #BlondeFighterToBrooklyn. With about a month until UFC 208, anything is possible. If given the opportunity, you know Katlyn will give it her all. Her footwork will dazzle you, and her stand up could be lethal against any opponent given the right moment. A movement has begun. There are many fights scheduled for UFC 208, and a handful of fighters represent the NY/NJ area (Jim Miller, Ryan LaFlare, etc.) There is only one “Blonde Fighter” though, and she’s waiting patiently for her moment. What does the UFC have to lose? Lets make it happen! Post Views: 1,422 The following two tabs change content below.BioLatest Posts Daniel Yanofsky Baseball Editor, Misc. Sports Editor.
