UFC clash between Marion Reneau and Macy Chiasson postponed once again, this time due to an injury

A scheduled UFC bantamweight bout between Marion Reneau and Macy Chiasson has been postponed for a second time – this time due to an injury.

Marion Reneau owns victories over the likes of Sara McMann and Jessica Andrade.

The scheduled 135-pound clash between Reneau and Chiasson has been moved from February 27 to the March 20th UFC on ESPN+ 46 event. The reason for the delay is due to an injury suffered by Chiasson, exact details have not yet been disclosed.

The fight was originally scheduled to take place at a UFC Fight Night event at the beginning of this month but was postponed to February 27 after Reneau tested positive for COVID-19. With Chiasson now being injured, the bout moving to March 20th marks the second time this fight has had to be delayed.

Reneau (9-6-1) will be looking to rebound from a three-fight losing skid in which she has lost out via unanimous decisions to Cat Zingano, Yana Kunitskaya and Raquel Pennington.

Chiasson (6-1-0) successfully rebounded from her first career loss by defeating Shanna Young in February 2020, the 29-year-old will look to go on a two-fight win streak and potentially crack the top-ten when she faces off against Reneau.
