A pair of flyweights in need of a win do battle on the undercard of UFC Fight Night Jacksonville on Saturday when Cortney Casey faces Mara Romero Borella from VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.

Casey is 8-7 in her MMA career, but she’s not afraid to mix it up. She lands 4.8 significant strikes per minute in the octagon, but she also absorbs 4.73. But it hasn’t necessarily translated to wins, as “Cast Iron” is 4-6 in UFC, and has lost three of her last four fights, with all the results by decision.

Borella is 12-7 as a professional, but just 2-3 in a UFC ring since joining the circuit in October of 2017. She lost her last fight to Montana De La Rosa in February, and will be 34 years old next month, so now would be the time to get her record on track if she’s ever to be competitive for the Top 15 rankings in the division.
