UFC Looking To Add Flyweight Bout Between Katlyn Chookagian and Cynthia Calvillo To UFC 255

The UFC is looking to add a flyweight bout between Katlyn Chookagian and Cynthia Calvillo to their coming UFC 255 pay-per-view, per a report from Brett Okamoto of ESPN.

The fight joins a card which is scheduled to take place on November 21st at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.

Calvillo, a former strawweight, made her flyweight debut in June, defeating Jessica Eye via decision after five rounds of competition. Calvillo will look to earn her 10th win as a pro in November.

Calvillo was meant to fight Lauren Murphy at UFC 254, however, a positive COVID-19 test took her out of the fight.

Chookagian will attempt to bounce back from a loss with the fight. Her previous fight was in October, being stopped late in the first round by punches from Jessica Andrade.
