A women’s bantamweight division attraction has been added to UFC Fight Night Sacramento according to Marcel Dorff of MMA DNA as #10 Sara McMann is in action against Nicco Montano.

McMann (11-5-0) is returning to action since the birth of her second child, but also enters the bout on a two fight losing streak.

McMann has previously challenged for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title, losing to then champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 170.

Montano (4-2-0) is competing for the first time since winning the UFC Women’s Flyweight Title at the UFC Ultimate Fighter 26 Finale. Montano has since been stripped of the title due to a lack of title defenses and this will mark her UFC Women’s Bantamweight Division debut. Montano is also a former King Of The Cage Women’s Flyweight Champion, defeating Jamie Milanowski to win the gold at KOTC: Social Disorder in October of 2016.

UFC Fight Night Sacramento takes place on Saturday, July 13 from a location to be announced with a main event to be announced. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, which streams live on ESPN+.
