Liana Jojua is a 26-year-old mixed martial artist who competes in the UFC Women’s Flyweight division. Also known as ‘She Wolf’, Juju attracted the attention of Dana White after winning her series in Russian MMA promotions.
Jojua was born on March 22, 1995, in Tbilisi, Georgia. She won the inaugural Fight Nights Global Women’s Bantamweight Championship in 201.
Jozua made his UFC debut in September 2019 against Sarah Moras, who gave him a rude welcome to the promotion. Moras defeated Georgian through TKO in the third round.
Jojua, however, returned to the winning column with a great submission against Diana Belbita. Hoping to continue her winning streak, the 26-year-old struggled with the growing expectations of Miranda Maverick on her third promotional tour at UFC 254.
Maverick gives Jujua an ugly punch in the first round which ruthlessly cuts off his nose. Ringside doctors find ‘She Wolf’ incapable of continuing.
1-2 at the UFC, Liana Jojo’s overall professional MMA record stands at 8-4. Although he trained Muay Thai early in his career, Jojua eventually established a reputation as a deadly deposit artist. Six of his eight wins have come through submissions, including five armbar.
According to Cagside Press, women’s MMA pioneer Gina Karano created interest in the sport of gambling after watching the fight.
When is the next battle of Liana Jojo?
Liana Jojua is expected to challenge Courtney Cassie at the UFC Fight Night: Hallway vs. Rodriguez on November 13 later this year. The two were due to lock their first horns in August. However, Jujua was forced to withdraw from the competition due to visa problems.
“My fight for August 22 has been postponed due to visa issues and a new date will be announced soon. Wait for the news,” Jojua wrote on Instagram.
