It is great to see Tracy Cortez (8-1) back as she has a ton of promise. She only fought once last year which was her second UFC fight cruising past Stephanie Egger to a unanimous decision. That made it three comfortable unanimous decisions in a row after beating Vanessa Melo which was also at bantamweight and outpointing flyweight up and comer Mariya Agapova on the Contender Series.

Justine Kish (7-3) is the next challenge for Cortez, and all of her losses have come in her last four fights. She earnt a unanimous decision over Ashley Yoder on her UFC debut before losing two decisions to Felice Herrig and Ji Yeon Kim. She bounced back with an impressive decision over Lucie Pudilova but she got submitted in her most recent fight by Sabina Mazo getting finished for the first time in her career.


Kish is an excellent kickboxer and should be able to outclass Cortez on the feet, but that is only if she can prevent the takedown. Cortez is a very strong wrestler with great jiu-jitsu and we fully expect her to succeed in getting the fight to the ground especially as Kish only has a 55% takedown defence.

Herrig is also a strong wrestler and was able to take Kish down with relative ease. We expect Cortez to have an even easier night at the office and could even pull off a submission.
