Reneau (9-3-1) comes into this battle on a two fight winning streak, last defeating Sara McMann at UFC On Fox 28. Reneau hasn’t seen one of her fights go the distance in over a year and the last one to do so came against Bethe Correia at UFC Fight Night 106.

Carmouche (11-6-0) has been undefeated since dropping to the flyweight division, defeating Alexis Davis by decision at UFC Fight Night Fresno. Carmouche has also challenged for the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Title, losing to then champion Ronda Rousey at UFC 157.

Scoggins (11-4-0) enters the bout on a two fight losing streak and he hasn’t picked up a victory in over two years. Scoggins also returns to action for the first time in a year, as he hasn’t fought since a loss to Yuta Sasaki at UFC Fight Night Singapore.

Nurmagomedov (11-1-0) is also going to be making his UFC debut in this fight and does so while in the midst of a five fight winning streak. Nurmagomedov has suffered just a single defeat as a professional MMA fighter and that came to fellow UFC fighter Magomed Bibulatov in June of 2014.
