A flyweight matchup between two top ten ranked contenders is in the works for an upcoming UFC event on June 20.
Modafferi is 2-1 in her last three Octagon appearances with impressive victories over Antonina Shevchenko and Maycee Barber. After the win over Barber at UFC 246 in January, Modafferi expressed interest in facing Murphy.
Murphy currently rides a two-fight win streak with victories over Mara Romero Borella and Andrea Lee. The former bantamweight is 3-1 in the flyweight division since dropping down in 2017.
