Both undefeated in their short UFC runs, Tracy Cortez and Bea Malecki will face off on UFC’s October 10th card. News of the matchup was first reported by Nolan King of MMA Junkie.
Cortez made her UFC debut last November, defeating Vanessa Melo via unanimous decision. Cortez was signed to the UFC after a successful performance over Mariya Agapova on TV series “Dana White’s Contender Series.”
In a rare case in MMA, Bea Malecki started her MMA career with the UFC, debuting in the promotion after competing on Season 28 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” With wins over Duda Santana and Veronica Macedo, Malecki will look for her third MMA win in October.
