An overzealous female fan stormed the Octagon during Saturday’s UFC 274 pay-per-view and instantly regretted it.

After missing weight and then losing to Piera Rodriguez at last month’s UFC 273, strawweight Kay Hansen was granted her walking papers from the premier MMA organization.

Some fans may have thought, at first glance, that Hansen had decided to take out her frustrations on the promotion by disrupting the UFC 274 event. That’s because her doppelganger attempted to do precisely that. Check out the TikTok madness below.

The video begins with the female voicing her intentions and being encouraged by her negative influence of a pal to follow through on it. After leaping onto the edge of the Octagon, a security guard flung her down to the floor like a hockey puck.

The incident occurred immediately after Oliveira’s submission victory over Gaethje in the main event. Perhaps this impulsive decision was a delayed reaction to the Namajunas/Esparza co-main event, which may have driven the fan to temporary madness.

There is no word yet on if any further action was taken on the fan aside from being checked by the security official. Should further updates become available, we shall keep you in the loop!

What are your thoughts on Kay Hansen’s doppelganger rushing the UFC Octagon??

UFC strawweight Kay Hansen has revealed her ongoing struggle with being sexually assaulted and dealing with an eating disorder.

Kay Hansen entered the UFC in 2020 and has gone 1-1 since joining the promotion. The former Invicta fighter admits that a family member sexually assaulted and raped her for three of her formative teenage years (16-19-years-old). While the scars are still fresh from that traumatic time in her life, the young upstart is confident that sharing her experience will be the best way to move forward emotionally.

Speaking to MMA Fighting‘s Mike Heck, Kay Hansen detailed her struggle living with an eating disorder and explained how all of her trauma nearly extinguished her blossoming MMA career.

“I just felt so sh*tty and it got to the point where my coaches started noticing. Two to three weeks out from the fight they said, ‘How about you take a few days off?’ Me, in my head [I said], ‘I have a fight soon, I can’t take any days off.’ It just got to the point where everything started crashing down. I was getting sick, I was always lightheaded, I was getting dizzy. I found out I was severely anemic, I was Vitamin D deficient. I lost my period. My whole body was just like, ‘We’re done,’ to the point where I physically couldn’t train.” Kay Hansen shared.

Hansen’s health problems permeated into the practice room. Since Hansen was physically unable to train, the strawweight admits that her career was almost on the line. Over the past year, Kay Hansen revealed that she’s much more open to talking about her struggles since so many women can relate.

“Facing your problems is not fun, especially your mental problems, the past you’ve been through and breaking that down, finding out why you’re doing certain things that are reactions. Hansen said. That sh*t’s not fun, at all. But this past year, I’ve had no choice but to dive into those. For me, I can kind of be open and talk about it now. It’s not something that I’m just storing away and hiding, even from myself.”

While confronting inner demons is never a fun journey, Kay Hansen has undergone notable growth through perseverance and determination. The 22-year-old is expected to make her return to the Octagon at the UFC 270 pay-per-view slated for Jan. 22.

Kay Hansen had quite the Saturday night.

The 20-year-old earned a win on her UFC debut after submitting Jinh Yu Frey with a third-round armbar in their women’s flyweight bout at UFC Vegas 4.

Hansen received an additional $50,000 for her effort after she was awarded a Performance of the Night bonus. And to top it all off, she also received praise from former women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey.

Rousey Congratulates Hansen

Rousey was known for her armbars so it certainly means a lot when it’s her complimenting a fellow female fighter on that technique.

It’s even more so the case when you’re a 20-year-old winning your UFC debut.

“Congratulations ?????? looking forward to seeing more from you! Nice armbar ?

Hansen also made one bettor richer as it was reported during the event that someone had staked $37,000 on her to get the win with a potential profit of $20,000.

That bettor ended up winning his bet and Hansen would go on to meet him at the airport afterwards. All in all, it was a very eventful weekend for the new UFC fighter.

Hansen previously competed at Invicta FC and now boasts a 7-3 record.
