01 Jan Cortney Casey vs. Gillian Robertson set for June 20 UFC event
Veteran octagon combatants Cortney Casey and Gillian Robertson are the latest additions to the growing UFC fight card on June 20.
Multiple people with knowledge of the booking said the bout was finalized for the summer event, which does not have an official location set but is expected to take place in Las Vegas at UFC APEX.
Casey makes a quick turnaround after submitting Mara Romero Borella this past Saturday at UFC on ESPN 8. She picked up a $50,000 “Performance of the Night” bonus in her first octagon outing at flyweight after starting her octagon career at strawweight.
Robertson most recently appeared in the octagon at UFC on ESPN 6, where she was stopped by Maycee Barber via TKO to snap a two-fight winning streak.
The current UFC card on June 20 includes:
- Roxanne Modaferri vs. Lauren Murphy
- Shane Burgos vs. Josh Emmett
- Lyman Good vs. Belal Muhammad
- Cortney Casey vs. Gillian Robertson
