With PFL 9 within touching distance. One fighter on the card will be making her PFL debut, in a weight class also making its first appearance. Dakota Ditcheva will take on Hassna Gaber in a Women’s Flyweight bout.
A highly touted prospect in the UK MMA world. She was announced as a PFL fighter earlier this year. Competing for a place in the PFL’s new European League that will be taking place in 2023.
On the night she will be the last fight on the card. Headlining the post main card European qualifiers portion of the card.
Anyone already familiar with Dakota knows what a delight it is to watch her fight. For those of you who are unfamiliar with the Brit here is a little about her as a fighter.
A former Muay Thai practitioner, she won British and world titles in the discipline. Making her name on that side of combat sports, she transitioned into MMA seamlessly.
Taking four fights as an amateur she won all four and finished two of them. Moving to the pro ranks she would continue this fine form. 5-0 as a professional, she won her first four all by stoppage via TKO.
Taking her Muay Thai background and utilising it to full effect in the cage. She has clean and crisp striking that would cause any 125-pounder a problem. Ever evolving she has added a solid grappling base to her already elite striking. Making Dakota a nightmare match-up.
At only 24, she is still extremely young in the world of MMA. A talent with this talent at this age is frightening. Ever evolving the trajectory is only upward. A huge opportunity for Ditcheva to announce herself to the world this weekend.
On the Night
On the night she’ll be taking on Morocco’s Hassna Gaber. Hassna is 4-1 as a professional and has finished two of her fights. One via TKO and another via submission.
How far can Dakota Ditcheva go in the MMA world?
