Days after her previous booking had to be thrown out, Cheyanne Buys is back in the UFC schedule. She will reportedly step in to replace Montserrat Conejo, who withdrew from her December 4th booking against Mallory Martin.
Mike Heck of MMA Fighting reported the change first. The new matchup is expected to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
It is not known at the moment why Conejo withdrew from her matchup. Her last fight was in July, where Amanda Lemos stopped her in just 35 seconds with strikes.
Buys was recently pulled from a November 20th booking against Loma Lookboonmee after testing positive for COVID-19. She scored her first UFC victory earlier this year, stopping Gloria de Paula with a first-round head kick.
Martin will be looking to bounce back from a submission loss she took to Polyana Viana in February.
