A women’s bantamweight bout pitting top-10 fighters Sara McMann and Liz Carmouche has been added to UFC Fight Night 105. The news was announced by UFC on Monday.
McMann was last seen in action at The Ultimate Fighter 24 Finale back in December where she submitted Alexis Davis. The former Olympic wrestler is currently ranked seventh in the division, and is riding a two-fight wining streak. McMann’s most recent loss came to current UFC women’s bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes. Meanwhile, Carmouche, ranked eighth, is also on a two-fight winning streak. Carmouche last competed at UFC 205 in November, outpointing Katlyn Chookagian.
Additionally, two other bouts where added to the card, as UFC veteran Sam Sicilia will attempt to break a two-fight skid by welcoming undefeated newcomer Gavin Tucker in a featherweight bout, and in the middleweight division, Ryan Janes will take on Gerald Meerschaert.
UFC Fight Night 105 is set to take place on Feb. 19 at the Scotiabank Centre in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. Heavyweights Travis Browne and Derrick Lewis are scheduled to battle in the main event of the card.
