A women’s strawweight bout between Heather Jo Clark (7-4) and undefeated Karolina Kowalkiewicz (8-0) has been added to the UFC Fight Night 87 fight card. UFC officials announced the addition to the May 8 event on Monday.
Clark appeared on The Ultimate Fighter 20 and was defeated in the preliminary round by Felice Herrig. She rebounded during the show’s finale by defeating Bec Rawlings by unanimous decision. Clark hasn’t competed since the win over Rawlings in December 2014.
Kowalkiewicz made her promotional debut in December, defeating Randa Markos by unanimous decision. The 30-year-old Polish fighter hopes to extend her unbeaten streak when she faces Clark at Ahoy Rotterdam in May.
