“The Ultimate Fighter 18” cast member Gina Mazany will make her Octagon debut against Sara McMann at UFC Fight Night 105 on Feb. 18.
Promotion officials confirmed that Mazany will replace the injured Liz Carmouche in the women’s bantamweight bout on Friday. UFC Fight Night 105 takes place at the Scotiabank Center in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, and is headlined by a heavyweight clash between Derrick Lewis and Travis Browne.
Mazany, who lost to Julianna Pena in the elimination round of “TUF 18,” owns a 4-0 professional record. She officially competed for the first time in more than three years this past May when she stopped Katie Halley via technical knockout in the opening round at a regional event in Alaska.
McMann, an Olympic silver medalist and former bantamweight title challenger, has posted consecutive wins over Alexis Davis and Jessica Eye in her last two Octagon appearances. The South Carolina native is 4-3 during her promotional tenure.
