Cory McKenna vs. Emily Whitmire Booked For September 18th UFC Card

Cory McKenna will look to score her second UFC victory when facing Emily Whitmire at the promotion’s September 18th card, per a report by Farah Hannoun and Nolan King of MMA Junkie.

The bout is expected to happen on a card that does not have a location confirmed for it currently.

McKenna won her UFC debut in November with a unanimous decision victory over Kay Hansen. She was returning just three months after she defeated LFA vet Vanessa Demopoulos on TV show “Dana White’s Contender Series.”

The five-fight Cage Warriors veteran has a pro record of six wins and one loss.

Whitmire will be looking to snap a two-fight losing streak. She has been submitted in her past two fights, including an armbar loss she took to Polyana Viana last year.
