PARIS – Ange Loosa wants to keep the momentum going.
The UFC welterweight got in his first fight of 2023 this past Saturday, defeating Rhys McKee in a unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 226. Loosa (10-3 MMA, 2-1 UFC) hasn’t been very active in recent times, but he wants that to change.
“That was a tough year for me,” Loosa said. “I want to be back before the end of the year. I really hope the UFC gives me something, and yeah, I want to be active as much as possible.”
Despite being a year away from the cage, Loosa looked good and had a strong showing against McKee (13-5-1 MMA, 0-3 UFC). He was very proud of what he was able to do in his return.
“I came to this fight and I knew I was able to bring the fight everywhere, so I was testing my skills and seeing where I can bring the fight, and I think I did that pretty well,” Loosa said. “I was winning on the striking and winning on the ground, so I’m proud of everything in this fight.”
