Sweden’s Cornelia Holm (0-0) was dominant in the amateur ranks and now she looks to do the same in the pro ranks as she takes on Diana Felipe (1-0) of Portugal. The bout will go down on October 14th at the Newport Centre in Wales on the Cage Warriors 87 card.
The GBG MMA fighter racked up gold medals in the IMMAF Swedish Championships, African Open, European Open, and World Championships, and also won mmaViking.com’s 2016 Nordic Female Amateur Fighter of the Year.
“My future is bright, I see UFC contracts and dollar dollar bills y’all!” said the up-and-coming fighter to MMA Viking. She has won her last 9 bouts.
Although starting at 145 lbs, then moving to 135 lbs for her amatuer success, Connie Future will drop to 125 lbs for her pro career.
Filipe has a 1 win and 0 loss record in her pro career. The VS Team fighter won by submission in March at KO Championships 10.
