Ham Seo Hee vs Cortney Casey added to Nov. 28 UFC show

Ham Seo Hee, Cortney Casey
Today the Korean media reported and the UFC just confirmed that Korean Strawweight Ham Seo Hee will face Cortney Casey Nov. 28 at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul. It looks like this show will air on UFC Fight Pass. This will be the UFC's first show in South Korea. I have known for a while that Ham would be on this show. I was just waiting for her opponent to be announced. Ham is a kickboxer who has fought MMA mostly in Japan. She is a former DEEP JEWELS 105lb champ. And part of her problem is she is undersized for 115lb. The size difference was obvious when Ham lost to Joanne Calderwood in her UFC debut in December. Ham is a quality striker but her other skills aren't good enough to overcome her size disadvantage. She was supposed to fight in Australia earlier this year but she dropped out due to injury. Ham has a long history of back problems. Cortney is from Hawaii. She lost her UFC debut to Joanne Calderwood in July. But I thought she looked pretty good considering she took the fight on short notice. I want to see how she does with a full camp of preparation. Stay tuned because I think the UFC is trying to put together a second women's fight for this show.
