The UFC has found a replacement for injured Liz Carmouche.

With Carmouche forced out of UFC 191, Raquel Pennington will now rematch Brazilian bantamweight Jessica Andrade, who returns to the Octagon less than two months after a decision victory over Sarah Moras.

UFC 191 is set for Sept. 5 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena, featuring Demetrious Johnson vs. John Dodson for the UFC flyweight championship.

Pennington (5-5) and Andrade (13-4) fought for the first time at UFC 171, and "Bate Estaca" came out victorious via split decision. Since that bout, Andrade went 2-1 inside the Octagon, while Pennington submitted Ashlee Evans-Smith before losing to Holly Holm.
