Sara McMann vs. Aspen Ladd in the works for UFC June 27 event

An exciting bantamweight matchup is in the works for an upcoming UFC event on June 27.

MMA Junkie confirmed on Monday that former bantamweight title challenger Sara McMann (12-5) and Aspen Ladd (9-1) have agreed to fight on that date. The UFC has not yet made any official announcement.

Ladd bounced back from the first loss of her pro career to Germaine de Randamie with a third round TKO victory over Yana Kunitskaya. She was slated to face Julianna Pena in March, however, Pena was forced to withdraw due from the bout to injury. Her Octagon resume also includes wins over Sijara Eubanks, Tonya Evinger and Lina Lansberg.

McMann returned to action in January with a dominant decision win over Lina Lansberg. The win snapped a two-fight skid that began prior to her pregnancy hiatus in 2018. Her Octagon resume also includes wins over Jessica Eye, Alexis Davis and Gina Mazany.
