A women’s flyweight division bout is reportedly set for the upcoming UFC Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale as Lauren Murphy is in action against Priscila Cachoeira.
Murphy (9-3-0) has won just one of four fights under the UFC banner, with that lone victory coming over Kelly Faszholz at UFC Fight Night 83. Murphy also competed on the UFC Ultimate Fighter 26, losing to Nicco Montano in the opening round of the reality show. Murphy is also a former Invicta FC Bantamweight Title, defeating Miriam Nakamoto to win the belt at Invicta FC 7.
Cachoeira (8-0-0) is going to be making her UFC debut in this fight and she does so with an undefeated streak that has lasted over a year. Cachoeira will also be competing for the fifth time this year and only one of her four fights this year went the distance. Cachoeira has split the way she had won her previous eight fights, with four wins coming by KO/TKO and four wins coming by way of decision.
UFC Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale takes place on Friday, December 1 from the Park Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada with no main event announced at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which airs live on Fox Sports 1.
