The Ultimate Fighting Championship officially announced UFC on FOX 24 on Saturday night, revealing four bouts for the card. The event will take place on April 15 at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.
Kicking off the fight announcements was a pivotal strawweight match-up pitting No. 5 ranked Rose Namajunas against No. 7 ranked Michelle Waterson.
Namajunas (5-3) had her road back to the title blocked by a split-decision loss to “Polish Princess” Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 201 last summer. She’ll attempt to get back on track against Waterson (14-4), who is coming off an impressive first-round finish over Paige VanZant.
