UFC Fight Island 4 weigh-in results: Holm, Aldana make weight

Holly Holm, UFC Fight Island 4

On Saturday night, the UFC will return to our screens with the under-the-radar UFC Fight Island 4 card on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

The UFC Fight Island 4 event will be topped by a women’s bantamweight fight between the division’s former champion, Holly Holm, and surging Mexican contender Irene Aldana. If Aldana wins this fight, the expectation is that she’ll earn a crack at reigning bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, while Holm could also be right back in title contention with a victory.

“A knockout always feels so good and a submission feels so good,” Aldana told BJPENN.com ahead of the fight. “A victory is a victory so I want to do my best and take my fighting to the best level,” she explained. “The best way to win a fight is by getting a finish and I’m always with that mentality. I’m not forcing a finish, though. If I have the opportunity, I will finish her.”

The UFC Fight Island 4 event will be co-headlined by a heavyweight fight between Yorgan De Castro and Carlos Felipe. Other attractions include a bantamweight contender clash between Germaine de Randamie and Julianna Pena, and an undercard welterweight scrap between former interim champion Carlos Condit and The Ultimate Fighter star Court McGee.
