The fierce rivals first met at Hexagone MMA 2 back in 2021, where they produced a gruelling war of attrition that left the judges unable to separate them. Subsequently, both women left the arena with an overwhelming desire to face each other for a second time. And to the delight of the fans, they finally have the opportunity to make things right.

With her vast repertoire of strikes and substantial age advantage, Kareckaite will look to finally pick up the championship belt she’s worked her whole life to hold.

However, Blot won’t give up her prized possession easily. The 39-year-old has proven herself in various martial arts. Blessed with incredible athleticism, the French star has competed in the world championships in sambo and wrestling and even won gold in judo, making her one of the most decorated athletes in combat sports.

But despite her supreme grappling ability, she didn’t initially want to compete in MMA, claiming: “I wanted to keep my pretty face.” But after setting foot in the cage for the first time, she fell in love with the sport, and now, with France behind her, she’s ready to put on a show.

With the flyweight titans so eager to finally put this rivalry to bed, this is an event that can’t be missed. So, to make sure you catch every last second of the action, we’ve compiled all the information you need below.

While Blot turns into an animal on fight night, during the day, she works as a train controller across Europe, balancing her heavy training schedule with everyday life.

She explained: “I don’t sleep at home three times a week. I do one night in Amsterdam, one night in Brussels and one night in Gare du Nord, in Paris. So I bring my outfit to train, I go running, I manage everything, it’s a mess.”

Even when grafting at her main gym in Marseille, she sleeps at the house of her coach’s mother-in-law, who prepares her meals. And it’s this attitude that has resonated with the public. Away from the glitz and glamour, Blot has worked tirelessly in pursuit of her goal, knowing that she won’t give up until she reaches the top. And on Sunday evening, in her nation’s capital, she’ll have the opportunity to solidify her legacy.

The stacked card will commence at 6 PM, with the main event fighters scheduled to make their ring walks at approximately 9 PM.

While the Parisian fans are rightfully excited for their champion’s title defence, there are a plethora of undercard bouts to whet the appetite. Former Cage Warriors champion, Chris Fishgold, returns to the world of MMA for the first time since his departure from the UFC.

In addition, fellow Liverpudlian, Dean Garnett, will make his eagerly-anticipated comeback against Miguel Haro. Throughout his time off, the ex-Bellator star has dedicated his life to training IMMAF world champion and UFC prospect, Mo Mokaev. But with his itch to compete still left unscratched, he’s excited to get back to competition. And providing he wins in style, a shot at the Hexagone MMA title could be on the horizon.

Furthermore, the bill starts with Afghan fighter Parwaiz Arabzai, who, having lost his last contest, is seeking redemption. However, the youngster is no stranger to adversity. At just 16, he fled his war-torn country in search of a better life, travelling through Pakistan, Iran and Turkey, before being arrested in Bulgaria.

Through his sheer resilience, he eventually made it to France, where he found MMA, and now, in front of the eyes of the world, he’s ready to make a statement.
