This Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 133 event features a flyweight contest between former title challenger Liz Carmouche and the promotional debut of Jennifer Maia.
Carmouche (11-6) makes her second promotional appearance as a flyweight after losing a split decision to Alexis Davis at the UFC Fight Night 123 event last December. The 34-year-old owns impressive UFC victories over the likes of Katlyn Chookagian, Lauren Murphy and Jessica Andrade. She notably challenged Ronda Rousey for the UFC bantamweight title in February 2013.
Maia (15-4-1) makes her highly anticipated promotional debut after a successful run with Invicta FC in which she captures the organization’s flyweight title and defended it two times. She owns notable wins over the likes of Roxanne Modafferi, Jessica Andrade, Vanessa Porto and Agnieszka Niedzwiedz.
UFC Fight Night 133 takes place this Saturday July 14 from the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho, United States. The early preliminary card featuring Carmouche vs. Maia airs live on UFC Fight Pass from 6:30pm EST.
