Irish Fighter Shauna Bannon Makes Octagon Debut at UFC London
Irish women’s Strawweight fighter, Shauna Bannon, made her highly anticipated Octagon debut at UFC London this past weekend. With an impeccable professional record and a background in kickboxing, Bannon aimed to make a splash against Bruna Brasil on the “Prelims” undercard. However, despite her determination and the support of her fans, Bannon struggled to gain momentum in the fight.
Throughout the match, Bannon found herself on her back during grappling exchanges, which hindered her performance. Despite rallying in the third round, she ultimately lost to Brasil by unanimous decision. Bannon took to her social media accounts to express her disappointment in her performance but remained hopeful for the future. She thanked her team, friends, family, and sponsors for their support and vowed to return to the Octagon.
One of Bannon’s biggest supporters in the MMA community is Conor McGregor, who publicly showed his support for her leading up to the fight. McGregor took to Twitter to express his excitement for Bannon’s debut and encouraged her throughout the week. Despite McGregor’s scorecard favoring Bannon, the judges saw the fight differently.
Moving forward, Bannon recognizes the areas she needs to improve, particularly in her ground game and speed. She is determined to level up and become a dominant force in the Strawweight division.
