Former pro boxer gets contract
StrawweightUFC
September 15, 2020
Wolf defeated Taneisha Tennant via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. After the show, she was one of three fighters to receive an official UFC contract.
ANALYSIS
Wolf is incredibly green in terms of MMA experience, but she's a decorated boxer with a 29-14 pro record that was once an Olympic hopeful. While she made a solid effort at a guillotine choke in the later stages of the fight, Wolf still has plenty of work to do when it comes to wrestling and jiu-jitsu exchanges. This type of fighter would typically be best suited for a developmental deal, but at 37 years old, Wolf is far from prospect status. She'll ultimately get the contract due to featherweight being one of the shallowest UFC divisions, and will have to lean on her stand-up heavily if she intends to string together wins.
