Katlyn Chookagian vs. Manon Fiorot added to UFC Paris

A matchup between top UFC women flyweights has been added to the September 3rd event in Paris, France.

At the event, #1 ranked Katlyn Chookagian will face #6 ranked Manon Fiorot in what might very well be a title-eliminator bout.

Chookagian (18-4-0) fought for the UFC strap back in 2020 but ultimately came up short losing the bout against Valentina Shevchenko in the third round. Since then, however, she has defeated some of the best in the division such as Cynthia Calvillo, Jennifer Maia, and Amanda Ribas. Now sitting as the #1 contender, she will look to make a claim for the title shot against Fiorot.

Fiorot (9-1-0) made her way to the UFC just last year and has gone undefeated in the promotion. The France native defeated Tabatha Ricci in her debut and has since defeated Mayra Bueno Silva and Jennifer Maia. The former UAE Warriors women’s flyweight champion will also look to make a claim for a title shot come September.

The event will mark UFC’s first showing in France. It is set for September 3rd and will take place at the Accor Arena.

Updated card:
