Undefeated UFC fighter Tatiana Suarez could make her return later this year, as the promotion is looking to book her against veteran Roxanne Modafferi on September 25th. News of the potential bout was reported by Ariel Helwani on Tuesday.
Should the fight be made, it would join a pay-per-view card that does not have a confirmed location at the moment.
Suarez has a flawless pro record of eight wins. In her career, she has attained five UFC wins and won Season 23 of “The Ultimate Fighter.” The momentum of the 30-year-old has been stopped in recent years as injuries have sidelined her since 2019.
Modafferi has switched between wins and losses in recent appearances. She last competed earlier this year, fighting to a unanimous decision loss against Viviane Araujo.
UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jan Blachowicz and Glover Teixeira are currently set to headline UFC 266. Here is the current lineup for the show with the new fight in place.
