Hannah Goldy will return to the UFC Octagon on Saturday Febuary 26th when she faces off against Jinh Yu Frey. Goldy has had a rough go in her early UFC career, but she was able to get back into the win column in her last bout and will hope to make it two in row when she fights again.
Goldy is a New Englander who grew up in the Green Mountains of Vermont. While growing up she Snowboarded and ran Track and Cross Country. She’d eventually moved to New York City where she caught a glimpse into the world of fighting when she saw a boxing match. She’d originally try boxing before switching to Muay Thai. She would win all of her fights in those two disciplines before switching to MMA.
Goldy would make her amateur MMA debut against Jenn Conaway for the Breakthrough MMA promotion. She’d win that fight by Unanimous Decision. Caitlin Simmons would be next for Goldy in June of 2015 winning by Submission (Guillotine Choke.) Kayla Stricker would be next for Goldy; the bout would be the only loss in Goldy’s amateur career. Goldy would then move on to fight professionally. She’d make her pro debut against future friend and future UFC fighter Submission specialist Gillian Robertson. She’d win the bout and would win her next three fights.
After her successful start to her MMA career Goldy would then get the call to fight on Dana White’s Contender Series. Goldy’s opponent would be Kali Robbins and Goldy would get the win by Unanimous Decision. She’d then face Miranda Granger in her UFC debut. Goldy would lose the bout by Unanimous Decision. She’d then face Diana Belbita and unfortunately would lose the bout again by Unanimous decision. Goldy would then face Emily Whitmire in September of last year she’d win the fight by Submission (Armbar.)
We hope Goldy gets another win when she faces off against Jinh Yu Frey.
