Knockout! Watch Casey O’Neill shine in debut, pummel Shana Dobson at UFC Vegas 19

Women’s flyweight prospect Casey O’Neill shined in her Octagon debut earlier tonight (Sat., Feb. 20, 2021) at UFC Vegas 19 live on ESPN+ from inside UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, when the Australian fighter finished veteran Shana Dobson via second-round TKO (punches).

Despite carrying a ton of hype with her entering her debut on ESPN+ there wasn’t much O’Neill did wrong against Dobson. She looked solid on the feet with crisp punches from range before closing the gap and implementing her heavy ground-and-pound. Dobson had no answer for the offense and the bout was eventually called in the second round.

O’Neill, 23, now pushes her undefeated MMA record to 6-0 with two of those wins coming by way of knockout. The young Australian prospect looked really good tonight against a tough fighter coming off a massive win (see it HERE) so it’s exciting to see what the newcomer can do heading deeper into 2021.
