First reported by the Chicago Tribune, two exciting, top contender bouts have been announced for UFC 238 in Chicago on June 8.
In the strawweight division, Nina Ansaroff (10-5) locks horns with Tatiana Suarez (7-0) in a bout that will likely determine the divisions next title challenger.
Ansaroff rides a four-fight win streak entering the bout, with victories over Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, Angela Hill, Randa Markos, and Claudia Gadelha. Suarez enters the bout unbeaten, coming off a UFC 228 win over former champ Carla Esparza.
In the flyweight division, top ten contenders collide as Katlyn Chookagian (11-2) meets Joanne Calderwood (13-3).
“Blonde Fighter” will look to bounce back from her first flyweight setback– a split-decision loss to Jessica Eye at UFC 231. Calderwood will look to keep her momentum at 125 going, building off of victories over Kalindra Faria and Ariane Lipski.
