Lisa Ellis will face “The Ultimate Fighter 20” castmate Bec Rawlings in a strawweight pairing at UFC Fight Night “Hunt vs. Miocic” on May 10.
Ellis replaces Seo Hee Ham, who withdrew from the bout due to undisclosed medical reasons, according to a report from MMA Kanvas. The UFC later confirmed the change through its Australia/New Zealand Twitter account.
Ellis enters the bout having lost four of her last five fights. In her most recent outing, the United Training Center representative was submitted via second-round armbar by Felice Herrig at the “TUF 20” finale. Ellis is 15-9 overall, with 11 triumphs by way of tapout.
Like Ellis, Rawlings came up short in her Octagon debut at the “TUF 20” finale, as she suffered a unanimous decision setback against Heather Clark. The Autralian sports a 5-4 career mark, including four triumphs inside the distance.
