Invicta FC veteran Mizuki Inoue has been added to the UFC Shenzhen card. The Japanese strawweight will face off with Wu Yanan on August 31st.

Following online rumours Inoue took to Twitter to confirm she has signed a UFC contract:

Inoue (13-5) will be fighting at 125lbs for the first time in here career at UFC Shenzhen. She has struggled to make the strawweight limit and has repeatedly missed in Invicta FC fights.

Yanan (10-2) has initially been slated to face Luana Carolina. That bout fell through for the second time this year and instead the Chinese flyweight finds herself going up against Inoue who will be significantly smaller.

As previously announced Weili Zhang faces reigning strawwweight champion Jessica Andrade in Shenzhen on August 31st. She will become the first Chinese fighter to ever challenge for a UFC belt.

Meanwhile Korean middleweight Jun Yong Park, Chinese welterweight Li Jingliang, Chinese flyweight Wu Yanan and Asian MMA veteran Kai Kara France will all be involved.

This will be the promotion’s third event in mainland China after cards in Shanghai and Beijing.
