    What's up guys!

    I recently did an interview with 22-year-old Australian Muay Thai specialist Chelsea Hackett, who will vie for a UFC contract on Contender Series tonight.

    A lot of people hold Chelsea in very high regard—including UFC featherweight champ Alex Volkanovski and Bellator's Bec Rawlings. Read this article to learn a bit about her, and see what Volkanovski and Rawlings have to say about her.

    It was a fun one to write!

    Hackett has the skills and the looks to be a star. Victoria Leonardo is a good test.

    Hackett was originally booked against Jamey-Lyn Horth Wessels, which is a much tougher fight for her. Leonardo is manageable.

    Praise from Volkanovski -- good.

    Praise from Bec Rawlings -- who cares?

    Sure, she's jacked, but... can she Hackett in the UFC?

    Chelsea is 3-0-1 in MMA. While she's super experienced in Muay Thai, she's new to this sport. Bec, on the other hand, is super experienced in MMA, and she was one of Chelsea's main training partners for this fight. So of course it's interesting to hear her thoughts on Chelsea, who is still a prospect.
