Former UFC women’s flyweight challenger Katlyn Chookagian got her hand raised up this past weekend after she managed to beat Jennifer Maia at UFC Vegas 46.
That was the second time “The Blond Fighter” has defeated Maia in the last three years, but this might be the last bout Chookagian has fought under the UFC banner.
After the clash, Katlyn admitted that this was her last fight of her current contract, but there was no talks or negotiations with the organization for a new contract.
“This was the last fight on my contract, and usually when you have one more, they renegotiate your contract,” Chookagian said during UFC Vegas 46’s post-fight press conference. “So when they offered this fight, I’m like, ‘Oh, I’m up for negotiation for a new contract,’ and they were like, ‘Oh no, we want you to fight this out.’
“That doesn’t necessarily mean they’re going to cut me, but it’s usually not good news. Hopefully with this performance, I’d like to think they want to keep me. I want to stay here. So hopefully I proved that tonight.”
