Bec Rawlings was expected to face Joanna Calderwood in a grudge match in Calderwood’s home country of Scotland at UFC Fight Night July 18th, but Rawlings has gotten an injury while training and is off the card. XFC and Tuff-n-uff vet Cortney Casey-Sanchez has stepped up on eight days notice to take the fight. The UFC UK announced the fight Thursday night.
Casey (4-1) had a stellar amateur career having won the Tuff-n-uff strawweight title by a highlight reel flying armbar. She entered the pro ranks defeating Kelly Warren. She would come up short against Pearl Gonzales for the XFC title, but won three straight for PXC MMA. All of her wins were by first round finish.
The match will be a part of the main card and will air on UFC Fight Pass July 18th.
