It was announced on Saturday that Tecia Torres and Mizuki Inoue have been booked for the main card of UFC on ESPN 8, which is on March 23rd, at the Nationwide Arena in Columbus, Ohio, USA.
Torres is currently fighting the longest losing streak of her career, with a win illuding her for her last four fights. Apart from her ongoing losing streak, Torres only has one other defeat as a pro.
Most recently, Torres lost via unanimous decision to Marina Rodriguez. Previously, she lost to Weili Zhang, who is currently the UFC Strawweight Champion.
Mizuki made a successful debut in the UFC last August, winning in a split decision contest against Yanan Wu. Before her UFC career, Mizuki notably fought in all-women’s MMA promotions like Invicta FC and DEEP Jewels.
Currently set to headline the Ohio card is heavyweights Francis Ngannou and Jairzinho Rozenstruick. The co-main event will see ranked bantamweights Raphael Assuncao and Cody Garbrandt try to snap their losing streaks.
