    Seriously, she keeps getting main card fights. She's not compelling, she barely wins and her style is super boring. So many better fights to showcase.

    Must be a quota thing.

    It's sad but she's probably the 3rd best fighter in her division

    Many levels below the skills and power of Valentina and Andrade though

    Matchmaking makes a lot of sense when you put yourself in the matchmakers shoes and think of fighters as employees.

    Say what you want about Katlyn Chookaigan but she is a good employee and a company woman.

    She fights frequently, takes short notice fights, makes weight, TOP 5 in her division, and doesn’t complain. Matchmakers probably think she is a really good employee.

    The rumor is that Chook and Jessica Eye allegedly had a coke fueled threesome with Uncle D. back in the early days... They signed an NDA because Dana doesn't get played like that, but as part of the deal Dana promised to gift them title shots and main card spots in perpetuity. Similar thing happened with Holly. Fabia was dating Eye at the time and knew, but unfortunately his credibility has been damaged due to Diego's antics.

    this is......IT.

    Seriously....I would just like Chookagian to GET A FINISH FOR ONCE.

    She is very good but FFS try to get a TKO or a sub. PLEASE.
    Yes ...we know Katlyn you are very good at winning on points but.... a few stoppage wins before you retire would be much appreciated. It's what it's all about really. Please. If you can. (don't think she can).

    Her finish rate is crazy low. She has 0 finishes in the UFC.

    OP failed to mention her opponents. She has a good record but two of those fights are against Andrade and Shevchenko which automatically puts her on the main card.

    Both her and her opponent tomorrow have records that are as good as all of those boring decision fighters in the men's divisions.

    I like WMMA but I don’t get this one.

    15 wins, 12 by decision and she was just TKO’d by Andrade less than a year ago
