UFC Fight Island is set to host its first Fight Night event of its second stint at Yas Islands in Abu Dhabi. UFC Fight Island 4 will feature a female bantamweight bout between Holly Holm and Irene Aldana.
After a successful first stint at the Yas Islands in Abu Dhabi back in July, the UFC is back in the region again and has already hosted a successful PPV card last weekend featuring UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya and Paulo Costa.
Holly Holm is coming off of a unanimous decision victory over Raquel Pennington earlier this year at UFC 246. Prior to that she lost to Amanda Nunes via TKO at UFC 235.
Irene Aldana, on the other hand, is coming off of a TKO victory over Ketlen Vieira at UFC 245 last year. Prior to that, she defeated Vanessa Melo via decision at UFC Fight Night 159.
In the co-main event, Yorgan De Castro takes on Carlos Felipe. Castro is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to Greg Hardy at UFC 249 earlier this year. On the other hand, Carlos Felipe also lost his last fight to Sergey Spivak at UFC Fight Night 172 in July.
Former women’s featherweight champion Germaine De Randamie is fighting Julianna Pena. Randamie is coming off of a loss to Amanda Nunes at UFC 245 last year. On the other hand, Pena is coming off of a win over Nicco Montano at UFC Fight Night 155 in July of 2019.
