Ramona Pascual gets last minute UFC opportunity!
Ramona Pascual has signed with the UFC! The Hong Konger steps in at very short notice to take on Josiane Nunes next weekend.
Pascual (6-2) has been living and training in Las Vegas. Her call up comes just days after fellow Hong Konger Sasha Palatnikov was cut from the promotion’s roster.
She is riding a four fight winning streak but has been competing at 145lbs or higher. With UFC Vegas 49 only a week away she has very limited time in which to prepare and cut weight.
Nunes (8-1) was originally scheduled to face Wanan Yu. When a second opponent fell through the UFC matchmakers turned to Pascual in order to keep the Brazilian on the card.
