Displaying remarkable conditioning, she faced off against Hannah Goldy in a thrilling three-round contest. The opening stanza saw both fighters engaged in a strategic clinch game, with cautious striking.

However, as the bout progressed, Japan's strawweight sensation unleashed her karate skills in the third round, showcasing her striking prowess. Her impressive performance earned her a unanimous decision victory, marking a triumphant return to the octagon after her extended hiatus.
