Per ESPN’s Ariel Helwani, a women’s featherweight fight between Cat Zingano and Megan Anderson is being targeted for the UFC 232 event on 29 December.
If the fight is made official, it will take place on the same card as Cyborg vs. Nunes. Cyborg has been vocal about wanting a backup fight for this event, and it appears she will get her wish.
Zingano (10-3) snapped a three-fight losing skid in her last showing, picking up the unanimous decision win over Marion Reneau at the UFC Fight Night 133 event in July. The 36-year-old owns notable stoppage wins over some of WMMA’s greats including Amanda Nunes, Miesha Tate and Raquel Pennington.
Anderson (7-3) made an unsuccessful promotional debut this past June, losing a unanimous decision to Holly Holm. The 28-year-old is a former Invicta FC featherweight champion who owns wins over the likes of Charmaine Tweet, Amanda Bell and Amber Leibrock.
UFC 232 takes place on December 29 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States.
