Mariya Agapova needed a new opponent for UFC Fight Night: Eye vs. Calvillo after the withdrawal of Melissa Gatto and now she has one because Hannah Cifers has accepted the short notice opportunity.
Combate first reported the news and the bout is expected to remain a part of the preliminary card.
Agapova (8-1-0) is going to be making her UFC debut in this encounter and does so on a two fight winning streak. Agapova competed on Dana White’s Contender Series Season 3, Episode 6, suffering a unanimous decision loss to Tracy Cortez. Agapova has competed a total of nine times as a professional MMA fighter and three of those bouts went the distance.
Cifers (10-5-0) enters the contest riding a two fight losing streak, dropping bouts to Mackenzie Dern and Angela Hill.
