A strawweight bout pitting Felice Herrig against Kailin Curran has been added to the UFC on Fox 20 lineup.
The promotion announced the bout on Thursday. UFC on Fox 20 takes place at the United Center in Chicago on July 23. The evening’s main card airs on the Fox Network. A headliner for the event has not been announced.
Herrig hasn’t competed since April 2015, when she suffered a unanimous decision loss to Paige VanZant at UFC Fox 15. The former Bellator MMA talent debuted in the Octagon with a second-round submission of Lisa Ellis at “The Ultimate Fighter 20” finale.
After falling to VanZant and Alex Chambers in her first two promotional outings, Curran tapped out Emily Kagan with a second-round rear-naked choke at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas on Dec. 10. The 25-year-old Hawaiian is 4-2 in her burgeoning professional career.
