Kunitskaya thinks she’s ready to return to the octagon after December decree

Russian UFC fighter Yana Kounitskaya announced a return to the octagon following the birth of her daughter, and also shared how she is recovering and training after the decree.

Kunitskaya is married to Brazilian fighter Thiago Santos. In April, their daughter Alice was born.

– I think before Christmas in December, and then we’ll see. Of course, I was ready to come back earlier, but as Thiago is fighting and we are focusing on his preparation, I’m not going to rush yet,” Kunitskaya said in an interview with Metaratings.ru.

– The training is serious, but it is not always possible to do everything you want. Let’s say I do less wrestling now, and more punching technique. Thiago fights in two weeks and is now busy with his preparations. Alice doesn’t always sit in a stroller, sometimes she cries, so she has to adapt. In the future, of course, everything will have to be better organized. Thiago is very happy that she was born, but this event did not particularly affect her, because I give her to train and fully concentrate on the upcoming fight, – said Kunitskaya.

Kunitskaya fought her last bout in July 2021 at UFC 264, losing by first-round TKO to Mexican Irena Aldana. On August 6, Santos will face American Jamal Hill in the main event of the UFC tournament in Las Vegas.
