Rising flyweights Erin Blanchfield and JJ Aldrich could put their winning streaks on the line at UFC’s June 4th event.
The promotion is reportedly in the process of confirming that matchup and both sides have verbally agreed to the fight, per Damon Martin of MMA Fighting.
If the fight can be finalized, it will join a card that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment.
Blanchfield has strung together a three-fight winning streak over the past year. Her last win came in March 2022, as she went three rounds with Gillian Robertson for a unanimous decision win.
Blanchfield has yet to lose since joining the UFC roster in 2021. She scored her second win for the promotion late last year, defeating Miranda Maverick on scorecards at UFC 269.
