UFC Mexico City poster released

Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

Two of the UFC’s most popular Mexican fighters are getting their chance to shine on the poster for UFC Mexico City.

Yair Rodriguez and Alexa Grasso are featured prominently on the promotional material for the Sept. 21 event, which takes place at Arena Ciudad de Mexico.

Looking to follow-up on a spectacular last-second KO of Chan Sung Jung last November, Rodriguez now faces 30-fight UFC veteran Jeremy Stephens in the UFC Mexico City featherweight main event.

Grasso will also be looking for back-to-back wins when she takes on former strawweight champion Carla Esparza.

The UFC Mexico City main card will air live on the ESPN+ streaming service. See the updated lineup below (bout order to be determined):

Yair Rodriguez vs. Jeremy Stephens

Carla Esparza vs. Alexa Grasso

Sijara Eubanks vs. Bethe Correia

Marion Reneau vs. Irene Aldana

Sergio Pettis vs. Alex Perez

Brandon Moreno vs. Askar Askarov

Angela Hill vs. Istela Nunes

Jose Quinonez vs. Carlos Huachin

Vinicius Moreira vs. Paul Craig

Martin Bravo vs. Steven Peterson

Marco Polo Reyes vs. Kyle Nelson
