A women’s bantamweight battle is being targeted for UFC Fight Night 138 in Moncton, Canada, on October 27th.
First reported by Raphael Marinho for Combate, Sarah “Cheesecake” Moras (5-3) and Talita Bernardo (5-3) will meet in Canada.
TUF 18 vet Moras, who’s flirted with the idea of moving up to 145 pounds, will return to the bantamweight division and look to get back in the win column. She was last seen in February, dropping a unanimous decision to Lucie Pudilova. Prior to that, she returned from a two-year lay off to submit Ashlee Evans-Smith in the first round.
Bernardo, known for her BJJ game, will look to pick up her first Octagon win. She has gone 0-2 in the UFC with losses to Marion Reneau and Irene Aldana since signing with promotion in 2017. Four of her five pro career victories come by way of submission.
Who will you be rooting for?
