A women’s strawweight fight between Mackenzie Dern and Ariane Carnelossi has been added to the UFC Fight Night event in Lincoln on April 25. The news was first reported by Raphael Marinho of Combate.
Dern (7-1-0) will look to rebound from the first defeat of her MMA career after losing a unanimous decision to Amanda Ribas this past October. The multiple-time BJJ world champion owns notable UFC victories over Amanda Cooper and Ashley Yoder.
Carnelossi (12-2-0) will make her second appearance for the UFC after an unsuccessful promotional debut this past September in which she lost to Angela Hill via third-round TKO.
UFC on ESPN+ 31 takes place on Saturday April 25, 2020, from the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Nebraska, United States.
