Irene Aldana is the #4 ranked fighter in the UFC Women’s Bantamweight division and also the #14 overall pound-for-pound fighter. Macy Chiasson is ranked #10 and shares the ranking spot with Pannie Kianzad.

UFC 279 is a deciding point for both fighters’ careers. While Aldana could pave the way to more high-profile fights in the Bantamweight division as she is already a contending fighter to obtain the belt title. If Chiasson were to win, she could move up from #10 to #4 or #5 to knock Aldana out of the league.

Irene Aldana’s Career

Irene Aldana is a professional Mexican mixed martial artist with a record of 13-6-0. This means that she has won half her fight, lost the other half, and does not have any draws. She has an orthodox stance and a striker fighting style, so she is formidable in the Octagon as she throws her punches and kicks.

Her UFC debut in 2016 against Leslie Smith ended in a loss by decision five minutes into the third round. Aldana lost against Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 210 the year after that. She secured three wins in a row between 2018 to 2019 at UFC Fight Night, UFC 228, and UFC 237 respectively.

Aldana’s wins and losses balanced out thereafter. After her three consecutive wins, she had one loss, two wins, another loss, and an additional win. Her most recent win against Yana Kunitskaya was via technical knockout with striking punches

Macy Chiasson’s Career

Macy Chiasson is an American mixed martial artist with a record of 9-2-0. While she has a higher win ratio than Aldana, Chiasson has fought eight fewer battles compared to her UFC 279 opponent.

The biggest highlight of Mary Chiasson’s career is that she won the Women’s Featherweight “The Ultimate Fighter 28” competition, which was a reality television series that ran from 2017 to 2018. A year after her “The Ultimate Fighter 28” win, Chiasson had her first UFC battle in the Women’s Featherweight Division against Gina Mazany. She took home the win with a technical knockout against Mazany in the first round.

At UFC Fight Night: Iaquinta vs. Cowboy in 2019, Macy Chiasson faced off against Sarah Moras. Chaisson knocked out Moras in the second round with a technical knockout. Her performance helped her to earn the Performance of the Night reward.

Aldana Versus Chiasson Predictions

Chiasson has a ten-pound advantage over Aldana. Hence, if Chiasson were to pin down Aldana, it could be more difficult to fight her off to get the advantage back on her side of the octagon.

Aldana is the crowd favorite because of her ability to steal everyone’s attention with a crowd-pleasing fighting performance. Her extensive training even as much as her mother preferred her not to become a fighter proved to be valuable to obtaining the record she is at now.

Chiasson had some exercise work in the Octagon in UFC 274 winning against Norma Dumont via split decision in May 2022. However, Aldana has not been in the octagon since her last win at UFC 264 against Yana Kunitskaya.

We already know Aldana’s fervor for training when she is not in the Octagon, but Chiasson is coming in with a desire to climb to the top in the Women’s Bantamweight division. Chiasson has a longer reach at 72’’ while Aldana’s reach is four inches shorter. Aldana could compensate for the lack of reach with her striking abilities, but Chiasson could counter with her dodging abilities.
