Tecia Torres vs. Rose Namajunas 2 targeted for UFC on FOX 19

Esther Lin, Invicta FC

Another intriguing fight is close to being added to the yet-to-be announced UFC on FOX 19 card.

According to sources close to the promotion, the UFC is targeting Tecia Torres vs. Rose Namajunas 2 on April 16. The UFC has yet to officially announce the card or its location at this time.

Torres handed Namajunas her first professional loss in July 2013 when she won via unanimous decision at Invicta FC 6. Since then, Torres (7-0) has won four in a row, including most recently another unanimous decision win over Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger in December.

Namajunas (4-2) is coming off a dominant fifth-round submission win over Paige VanZant in December, which was by far her most impressive a professional. The victory marked her second in a row.

Among the fights already reported for the card are Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson, Rashad Evans vs. Shogun Rua and Michael Chiesa vs. Beneil Dariush.
