A women’s strawweight bout has been added to UFC Shanghai on November 25th in Shanghai, China.
MMA-Today.com (@MMATodayNews) reported earlier today via Twitter that strawweight Kailin Curran (4-5) will return to the octagon in enemy territory to take on UFC newcomer Xianon “Fury” Yan (7-1-1).
Curran has suffered losses in five of her last six bouts. She was last seen in action at UFC 214 in a FOTN-worthy performance against undefeated strawweight Alexandra Albu.
Chinese prospect Yan last fought in November in a bout that was ruled a no contest due to an accidental head clash. She has competed for ROAD FC. Of Yan’s seven victories, five come by way of KO/TKO. “Fury” is UFC’s first female signee from China.
