Talita Bernardo vs. Irene Aldana promoted to Fox Sports 1 televised prelims

Sunday’s scheduled bantamweight fight between Talita Bernardo and Irene Aldana has been moved from the UFC Fight Pass early prelims to the televised Fox Sports 1 prelims.

Irene Aldana searches for her first UFC victory this Sunday.

Aldana (7-4) looks to rebound from a two-fight losing streak after dropping decisions to Katlyn Chookagian and Leslie Smith. Prior to joining the UFC, the 29-year-old enjoyed a highly successful 4-1 run with Invicta FC, picking up first round stoppages over Peggy Morgan, Colleen Schneider, Jessamyn Duke and Faith Van Duin. Her sole loss with the organization came to Tonya Evinger.

Bernardo (5-2) made an unsuccessful UFC debut this past September, finding herself victim of a third round TKO at the hands of Leslie Smith. The 30-year-old was on a four-fight win streak before joining the UFC, which included three first-round submissions.
