Pic: Chicago Tribune does a story on Felice Herrig, has no idea who Felice Herrig is


It must be pretty nice to get featured in a newspaper as old and as widely-read as The Chicago Tribune. Well, that’s assuming said newspaper actually knows who you are and what you look like.

UFC strawweight contender Felice Herrig earned page space over the weekend after news broke that she would be facing Karolina Kowalkiewicz at the upcoming UFC 223 pay-per-view (PPV) event inside Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, on Sat., April 7, 2018.

Then complemented the story with a photo of Cortney Casey, who lost to Herrig at UFC 218 back in December.

“Hey Chicago Tribune …. next time you decide to put me in the paper maybe you could use a photo of me instead of my opponent,” Herrig wrote on Instagram. “Thank you.”


UFC 223 will be headlined by the lightweight title fight pitting Tony Ferguson opposite Khabib Nurmagomedov. Elsewhere on the card, Rose Namajunas defends her 115-pound strap opposite Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
