Since Holly Holm left for the UFC, Legacy has been without a bantamweight champion. The promotion intends to fill that spot in January.
Valentina Schevchenko will face undefeated Kelly Faszholz for the vacant belt January 22nd at Legacy 50 in Houston, Texas, which will air live on AXS TV.
Schevchenko (9-1) has been on a four fight win streak since her lone loss to Liz Carmouche in 2010. She has finished in all but two of her wins and her latest victory came over Jan Finney in February by decision.
Faszholz (3-0) has won all her pro bouts by rear naked choke, with wins over Summer Bradshaw and Britteny Elkins.
The fight will main event the card.
