Veronica Macedo, a 22-year-old prospect from Caracas, Venezuela, is one of the rising fighters to watch in the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s flyweight division. Macedo began her professional career in March 2016 and went on to have six professional fights within five months, earning a 5-0-1 record. Macedo then received the call-up from the UFC and made her promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 93 getting TKO’d by Ashlee Evans-Smith.
Macedo is a black belt in Taekwondo, brown belt in karate, and a brown belt in jiu-jitsu.
After seven pro fights within a calendar year, Macedo took a year off to get back to 100 percent and continue to fine tune her game.
She will now return to the octagon on Saturday, May 19 and attempt to return to the win column when she takes on Andrea “KGB” Lee at UFC Fight Night 129 at Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile. The event is headlined by a bout between top-ranked welterweight contenders Demian Maia and Kamaru Usman. UFC Fight Night 129 will air live on FOX Sports 1.
A for what you can expect from Macedo in the cage when she is on top of her game, there is plenty of power.
