Former Deep Jewels champion Seo Hee Ham picked up her first UFC victory in her home country tonight at UFC Fight Night 79: “Henderson vs Masvidal” in Seoul, South Korea. The standout striker edged out Cortney “Cast Iron” Casey on the feet in a closely-contested strawweight matchup.
Casey got off to a solid start in the opening round after backing Ham up with a head kick and punches, but Ham stood her ground and rallied back with crisp striking throughout the final ten minutes. Casey slowed down in round three and Ham walked away with a well-deserved win on the scorecards.
