Two strawweights in need of a win are set to meet this fall.
MMA Fighting confirmed with sources that Ashley Yoder (7-6) and Miranda Granger (7-1) will fight at a UFC event scheduled for Nov. 14.
Yoder looks to avoid a three-fight losing streak after dropping back-to-back decisions to Livinha Souza and Randa Markos in her previous two outings. “Spider Monkey” has struggled since coming over from Invicta FC, winning just two of seven UFC appearances.
Coming off of her first pro loss, Granger returns to action after seeing a fight with Nadia Kassem canceled this past August due to a Kassem injury. Granger defeated Hannah Goldy by unanimous decision in her debut in August of last year, then lost by first-round submission to Amanda Lemos in her next fight.
A location is still to be determined for the Nov. 14 event, which also is slated to feature a bantamweight bout between Louis Smolka and Jose Alberto Quinones, and a strawweight matchup between Kay Hansen and Contender Series contract winner Cory McKenna.
