UFC is looking to book a fight between Irene Aldana and Yana Kunitskaya for their July 10th pay-per-view card, per a report from Carlos Contreras Legaspi of ESPN Deportes.
Should the fight be finalized, it will join a card that is scheduled to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
