The 29-year-old Acosta of San Diego Calif. via Tijuana, B.C., Mexico will take on Manuela “The Butcher’s Daughter” Marconetto (4-4) in a flyweight (125 pounds) contest that will take place in addition to four matchups pitting a collection of fighters from Ireland against rivals from Mexico.

Acosta, whose fight videos and highlights have garnered millions of views across YouTube, TikTok and Instagram, is seeking her third consecutive win following two straight, dominant performances in which she earned a unanimous decision over Venezuelan Mariel Celimen and submitted Spain’s Silvia Juaneda with a standing guillotine choke in the first round (1:24) of action on September 24, 2022 and August 6, 2023, respectively.

Acosta’s marked improvement has shown since partnering with San Diego-based trainer and boxing specialist, Nestor Flores, in 2022.

Marconetto is a 33-year-old native of Torino, Italy and resident of London, England, where she  transitioned from being a K-1 style kickboxer to an MMA fighter and member of Great Britain Top Team, led by Brad Pickett.

The ‘Ireland vs. Mexico’ portion of the card, an unprecedented occurrence for the sport of MMA features matchups between fighters from two of combat sports’ greatest fighting legacies, and will be headlined by the previously announced featherweight (145 pounds) affair between Patrick “The Leech” Lehane (5-2) of Cork, Ireland and Roberto “El Charro Negro” Romero (7-2-1) of Chihuahua, Chih., Mexico.
