Falls in UFC debut
BantamweightUFC
October 10, 2020
Egger lost to Tracy Cortez via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Abu Dhabi.
ANALYSIS
Egger entered Saturday's affair with all of six professional fights under her belt, and her lack of experience was on display early and often. She consistently struggled with positioning issues in a fight that was almost entirely contested in close quarters. This theoretically should have worked out well for Egger considering she was the woman with a larger frame, but she simply didn't have the requite skills to take advantage of the opportunity. Egger is 32 years old and has spent her entire career on the regional circuit outside of one fight in Invicta back in November 2016. There simply isn't much here.

To debut against Cortez
BantamweightUFC
October 5, 2020
Egger will make her UFC debut against Tracy Cortez in a bantamweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Oct. 10 on Fight Island, Aaron Bronsteter of TSN.ca reports.
ANALYSIS
Egger has just six pro fights to her name, as she's most recently competed under a promotion called "Buddy MMA" in early-September. She'll have a height advantage over Cortez, but Cortez is the much younger fighter with higher-quality experience. As of the start of fight week, Egger finds herself listed as approximately a (+200) betting underdog.
