ABU DHABI – Joselyne Edwards beat Wu Yanan with a unanimous decision Saturday on the preliminary card at UFC on ABC 1 in Abu Dhabi.
Take a look inside the fight with Edwards, who was jubilant after a big win in her long-awaited UFC debut.
“I’m so excited to make it to the major leagues. I know the UFC is the No. 1 league in the world and I knew I was going to get the win, even though I took the fight on short notice. I tried to push forward the whole fight, so I feel really excited about the result.”
“I can’t deny it: She is a really strong fighter. She has more experience than I do. There are little details I must adjust, but I feel really comfortable about my performance. I tried to push her and keep moving forward, because I studied her and I know that when you pressure her, she tends to go back, so that’s what I did.”
“This was my UFC debut, and I want to keep myself humble. I know (bantamweight) is a hard division, but at the same time, I know I have enough skills to give good battles just like I did today.”
