Wu Yanan faces Luana Carolina at UFC 237
Wu Yanan will be looking for her second straight win inside the Octagon on May 11th. The Chinese flyweight has been booked to face Luana Carolina at UFC 237.
Yanan (10-2) is coming off a decision win at UFC Fight Night 141. While she had the Chinese fans firmly behind her in Beijing, the 22 year old can expect a much more hostile reception in Rio de Janeiro.
Her opponent Carolina (5-1) is a promotional newcomer but has not lost a fight since 2015. The Brazilian earned a UFC contract on the back of an impressive performance at Dana White’s Contender Series last year.
UFC 237 will be headlined by a strawweight title fight between champion Rose Namajunas and challenger Jéssica Andrade. The card also features Brazilian legends Anderson Silva and Antônio Rogério Nogueira.
