An exciting strawweight matchup has been added to UFC’s upcoming Fight Night event on June 20.
“The Tiny Tornado” Tecia Torres (10-5) is set to former Invicta champ Brianna Van Buren (9-2).
Torres, a perennial strawweight contender, currently rides a four-fight skid with losses to top level competition in former champs Jessica Andrade and Joanna Jędrzejczyk, current champ Zhang Weili and undefeated contender Marina Rodriguez.
Van Buren made her UFC debut in July, defeating Livinha Souza via unanimous decision. Prior to signing with the UFC, “The Bull” was crowned the Invicta FC strawweight champion by winning the first Phoenix Series one-night tournament.
The card is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Vegas.
