Casey O’Neill Reveals How She Treats Herself After Every Win
Casey O’Neill (7-0) is gathering momentum in the UFC to eventually challenge the elite fighters in the flyweight division. But apart from her fierce reputation in the octagon, she treats herself to a donut every time she wins.
So far, the UFC newcomer has won both of her fights in the promotion. Las Vegas’ culinary tour is where you will find O’Neill every time after the referee raises her hand in the octagon.
“I love doughnuts — they’re probably my favorite food or favorite sweet thing, so of course I get doughnuts after every fight,” O’Neill explained with a laugh. “I’ve found a couple [of stores], but it seems that every time I go to a new one, I like that place more than the last.
She has been scheduled to fight her former teammate Antonina Shevchenko on October 2 at the UFC Apex.

The 23-year-old flyweight knows that making it to the UFC at such a young age will help her improve her skills as she will rub shoulders with some of the best female fighters in the world.
“It’s nice how the UFC is building me — I feel like they’re doing it the right way giving me harder fights as I go on,” O’Neill said after she submitted Lara Procopio in June. “I’m still really young in my career, so obviously that fight was my hardest to date, but I feel like I handled the pressure and the fight really well and that I dominated the majority of it.”
