Wu Yanan and Ji Yeon Kim to fight in February
Flyweight Kim (9-4-2) had been booked to face Poliana Botelho at UFC 270. But instead of fighting in front of a live audience on a pay per view card the Korean finds herself competing at the Apex Centre a few days later.
She is coming off back to back decision losses although she did pick up a $50,000 USD bonus for her defeat to Molly McCann at UFC Vegas 36. With a 3-4 record inside the octagon this has the makings of a must win fight for the Korean.
Cachoeira (10-4) finds herself in a similar situation having won only two of her four UFC fights. She is coming off a submission loss to Gillian Robertson at UFC 269.
Yanan (12-4) is also coming off back to back losses with just one win from her four UFC fights. She has been matched with Brazil’s Josiane Nunes in a bantamweight bout.
