Dobson is fresh off a major upset victory where she finished Mariya Agapova via second-round TKO at UFC on ESPN 15 this past August. The “Performance of the Night” victory snapped a three-fight losing streak for “The Ultimate Fighter” season 26 veteran.

O’Neill is unbeaten in all five of her previous professional appearances. The Tiger Muay Thai product most recently defeated Christina Stelliou by second-round TKO at UAE Warriors 13 this past September.
In her professional debut, she captured the Eternal MMA strawweight championship with a unanimous decision win against Amira Hafizovic at Eternal MMA 43 in April 2019.
