Not only has Raquel Pennington been booked for a co-main event spot this weekend at UFC 184, but she’s been signed to fight undefeated MMA fighter and decorated boxer Holly Holm. In other words, this Saturday’s fight is a pretty, pretty big opportunity for Pennington.
The bantamweight was awarded the high profile fight following her highlight reel, choke out victory over Ashlee Evans-Smith, which you can watch below. The bout took place in December at UFC 184.
The 26 year-old Pennington has gone 2-1 to date in the UFC, while Holm will be making her Octagon debut.
UFC 184 will be hosted by the Staples Center in Los Angeles and will feature bantamweight champ Ronda Rousey taking on Cat Zingano.
