The UFC is booking fights into mid-May and a women’s flyweight bout between two contenders is the latest addition to the schedule.
Katlyn Chookagian and Viviane Araujo will square off May 15 at a yet-to-be-announced UFC event. The card does not currently have a location or venue.
A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie after UFC broadcast partner ESPN reported the news Wednesday.
