Tonya Evinger has recieved a new opponent and a new date for her next UFC fight.
The former Invicta bantamweight champion and one-time UFC featherweight title challenger will now face fellow Invicta vet Aspen Ladd at UFC 229 on Oct. 6.
Evinger (19-6) was originally slated to face Ketlen Vieira in a top contender fight but the Brazilian was forced to withdraw due to a knee injury that will require surgery.
Luckily for Evinger and fight fans, the promotion was able to find a replacement opponent in unbeaten Aspen Ladd (5-0). The 23-year-old has five finishes in six wins, including a TKO victory in her UFC debut versus Lina Lansberg in October of 2017.
