National MMA promise, Melissa Gatto should have a new commitment by the UFC officially confirmed soon. In her fourth bout for Ultimate, the flyweight (57kg) member of Paraná, has a verbal agreement to face Gillian Robertson on September 17, still at no location. The information was obtained exclusively through the report of the Ag. fight with sources close to the organization.
Melissa Gatto, 26, is another Brazilian MMA talent, but she’s looking to make her return to the UFC. In her last Octagon appearance, held in May, the athlete lost her undefeated record in the sport to Tracy Cortez. In the sport since 2016, the paranaense has a track record consisting of eight wins, six of them by fast lane (four by submission and two by knockout), one loss and two draws. His main triumphs were over Karol Rosa and Sijara Eubanks.
Gillian Robertson, 27, has more experience in the UFC, but is going through a bad phase in her career. The Canadian has lost three of the last four fights she has contested. His last Octagon appearance was in March. Despite the recent negative record, the athlete has some interesting records at flyweight in the organization. “The Savage” is the athlete with the most fights (12), quick wins (6) and submissions (5) in divisional history.
