A battle between two of the UFC’s youngest strawweight prospects is the latest addition to the promotion’s November 14th card.
The UFC has added Kay Hansen (7-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) vs. Cory Mckenna (5-1) to the lineup for the event. No location or name designation has been announced for the event at this time.
UFC officials announced the bout during the Dana White’s Contender Series 29 broadcast Tuesday.
McKenna, the first Welsh female fighter in UFC history, earned a contract on Dana White’s Contender Series 28 when she defeated Vanessa Demopoulos by unanimous decision. The 21-year-old has won her past three and trains at Team Alpha Male in Sacramento, Calif.
Hansen, who’s also 21, made good in her UFC debut when she submitted Jinh Yu Frey at UFC on ESPN 12, earning a “Performance of the Night” bonus. She has finished six of her seven pro wins.
With the addition, the latest Nov. 14 lineup includes:
- Kanako Murata vs. Livinha Souza
- Julian Marquez vs. Saparbek Safarov
- Kay Hansen vs. Cory McKenna
