01 Jan Cortney Casey vs. Priscila Cachoeira added to UFC event on Oct. 31
UFC flyweights Cortney Casey and Priscila Cachoeira will battle inside the octagon on Oct. 31, multiple sources told MMA Fighting following a report from Combate.
The promotion has yet to announce the exact location for the Fight Night event, which will feature a middleweight showdown between Uriah Hall and Anderson Silva as the headliner.
Casey (9-8), who has bounced between wins and losses over the past couple of years in the UFC, now looks to get back on track following a third-round submission defeat to Gillian Robertson in June, a month after submitting Mara Romero Borella in Jacksonville, Fla.
Cachoeira (9-3) signed a new contract with the UFC after scoring a devastating 40-second knockout over Shana Dobson in February, coming back from a 3-0 start in the company with defeats to Valentina Shevchenko, Molly McCann and Luana Carolina.
