What does each athlete have in common with the fans that cheer them on? This series fills in those blanks and gets to the heart of the matter, while exploring what makes your favorite fighters who they are.

Macy Chiasson is a professional fighter in the UFC women’s bantamweight division. She is also the winner of the 28th season of The Ultimate Fighter, winning a UFC contract. In her six wins, she has four finishes – two via submission and two via TKO.

Chiasson only had two professional wins before joining The Ultimate Fighter. She would finish all of her opponents via TKO/KO on the show. She made her UFC debut by submitting Pannie Kianzad, ranked No. 13 in the division as of this writing.

After suffering her first loss, Chiasson most recently got back in the win column as she defeated Shanna Young via unanimous decision. She unfortunately only fought once in 2020 due to undisclosed medical reasons. SHE IS BACK, HOWEVER!
