Off UFC card
April 16, 2021
Fairn's bout against Josiane Nunes at Saturday's UFC event has been pulled from the card after Fairn missed weight by eight pounds at Friday's weigh-in, Nolan King of MMA Junkie reports.
Fairn's fight was switched from bantamweight to a catchweight of 139 pounds prior to the start of weigh-ins, but Fairn still weighed in a whopping eight pounds over the mark and the fight ended up being canceled as a result. Both of Fairn's previous UFC bouts took place at featherweight and she was set to make her debut at the bantamweight division before failing to make weight. It's unclear if she plans to move back up to featherweight or continue to lose weight in an attempt to stay at bantamweight.
Books match with Josiane Nunes
March 31, 2021
Fairn (6-4-0) is scheduled to face Josiane Nunes (7-1-0) in a bantamweight fight at the UFC's April 17 event, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
Fairn returns to the Octagon looking to get back on track after losing in both of her last two fights to Megan Anderson (at UFC 243 in October 2019) and Felicia Spencer (in February 2020). She'll be taking on a UFC newcomer in Nunes, who signed with the promotion earlier in 2021, shortly after winning her sixth straight fight.
Gets 60-day suspension
March 2, 2020
Fairn has received a 60-day medical suspension after injuring her orbital bone at UFC Norfolk, Steven Marrocco of reports.
Fairn sustained the injury in her in his first-round TKO loss to Felicia Spencer. The fight was called around the three-minute mark. She has now suffered first-round losses in her first two UFC bouts. The 33-year-old will need to submit an X-ray for her left orbital socket in order to get reinstated.
Not competitive once again
February 29, 2020
Fairn lost to Felicia Spencer via TKO (punches) at 3:37 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Norfolk, Virginia.
In all honesty, Fairn was done right around the three-minute mark, but referee Dan Miragliotta allowed her to eat 30 seconds or needless punishment for no reason. It's been a rough night at the office for the refs. As for Fairn, placing her the co-main event slot appeared to make no sense entering the evening and it looks even worse now. She has suffered first-round stoppage losses in each of her first two UFC bouts. The UFC is going to have a difficult time justifying running the 33-year-old out there for another fight. There simply isn't anything here.
Facing Spencer at Norfolk
December 18, 2019
Fairn is set to face Felicia Spencer in a featherweight bout at UFC Norfolk on Feb. 29, MMA Junkie reports.
Dos Santos will attempt to rebound from her submission loss (triangle choke) to Megan Anderson at UFC 243 in October, but Spencer presents a tough matchup. Spencer coincidentally defeated Anderson via a rear-naked choke in the first round of their bout in May before falling to Cris Cyborg in her last fight in October. Dos Santons is 6-3 overall in professional MMA but is looking for her first UFC victory.
