UFC Vegas 29 Prospects to Watch: Camur & O’Neill

Fight of the Night WAR will be happening with Dan Ige vs Korean Zombie. Dan Ige looking to become a top ten Featherweight in 2021. Fighters like Aleksa Camur and Casey O’Neill looking to become top ten fighters in the next following years.

Aleksa Camur

Stipe Miocic protégé Aleksa Camur making his third appearance after losing to William Knight at UFC 253. Stipe Miocic kept calling Dana White while watching Camur on the Dana White Contender Series. Knocking out his opponent with a flying knee.

Camur 1-1 with the UFC but looking to a hot start to 2021 with a win against Nick Negumereanu.

“Obviously, I love a quick finish. A quick finish is awesome. A decision, you know, it is what it is. But, a three-round war or a five-round war, whether it’s like the main event or an undercard fight, I’d love that. I’d have fun doing that.”

I train with Stipe as much as I can. He’s a huge help for my career. He hits hard, so I know going into fights that these guys aren’t going to hit as hard as he does. He guides me inside and outside of the octagon – not only Stipe, but the whole team at Strong Style.”

Quick finish can lead to better fights for the prospect out of Strong Style Fight Team. Becoming one of the rising prospects for the UFC Light Heavyweight Division.

Casey O’Neill

Gradually becoming one of my favorite prospects to watch. Before signing with UFC was one of the best Women’s Flyweight prospects in the world. Training at Xtreme Couture with Dan Ige, Coached by one of the best MMA coaches Eddie Barraco.

“I feel like the community of people at Xtreme Couture and 10th Planet is small, but they’re super close to each other,” O’Neill said. “Everybody is willing to help you out and give you time and give you their body to be a partner. Eddie (Barraco) has all the time in the world for me to hold pads and everything, so it’s a very friendly environment, and they make you feel at home straight away. Being an outsider, you don’t always get that, but I felt it straight away here.”

Casey O’Neil can really make a mark in the Flyweight Division as she carves her opponents with technical Muay Thai. Right now one of the most talented flyweights.

“I look at my division and I see myself as one of the top five in the division, and with experience and time I’m going to prove that to everybody else. Obviously I’m super young and I have a lot of time to grow, but I’m definitely one of the most talented people in the flyweight division, in my opinion.

Only 23 years old, Casey O’Neill can have a long promising UFC Women’s flyweight career, Challenging for the title. Really looking forward to this fight for Casey O’Neill and her 2021 UFC campaign.
