A ranked strawweight has been added to the UFC’s upcoming July 17 show.
Also officially added to the July 17 card are a heavyweight bout between Rodrigo Nascimento (8-1) and Alan Baudot (8-2), a bantamweight bout between Miles Johns (11-1) and Anderson dos Santos (21-8), and a previously reported middleweight bout between Rodolfo Vieira (7-1) and Dustin Stoltzfus (13-2).
Lemos enters her next bout on a three-fight win streak, with wins over former Invicta FC strawweight champion Livinha Souza, Mizuki Inoue, and Miranda Granger. In her most recent outing in March, Lemos finished Souza via first-round TKO. She is currently No. 14 in the UFC’s official strawweight rankings.
Ruiz seeks her second UFC victory after a successful debut in March against Cheyanne Buys. The decision win was not without controversy, as the bout ended in a heated verbal exchange between the two, with Buys accusing “Conejo” of spitting on her at the conclusion of the bout. Montserrat has denied the accusation.
