After a successful debut in the UFC, Viktoria Dudakova asked the organization to include her in the lineup for UFC 294, which will take place on October 21 in Abu Dhabi, and the organization’s management went along with the 24-year-old Russian, assigning her a fight against American Jin Yu Frei.
The organization of the women’s featherweight bout was reported by informed sources close to the situation.
This July, undefeated Viktoria Dudakova recorded her first win under the UFC banner with a technical knockout win over Brazilian Istela Nunes, who already dislocated her elbow in the 34th second of the fight while unsuccessfully defending against her opponent’s transfer.
Jin Yu Frei, 38, suffered her third straight defeat in June, losing by unanimous decision to Alice Reed.
As a reminder, the main event of UFC 294 will be a lightweight title fight between Islam Makhachev and Charles Oliveira.
