After the UFC announced it’s upcoming return to Chicago, Illinois, a few women’s bouts have been added to the card.

One that stands out immediately is the return of top 115-pound prospect Tatina Suarez. The cancer survivor and former Olympic-hopeful is undefeated in her mixed martial arts (MMA) career thus far. In her last outing, she dominated former UFC women’s strawweight champion Carla Esparza with a third round TKO victory.

Now, according to a report from The Chicago Tribune, she’ll face Nina Ansaroff at the UFC 238 pay-per-view (PPV) from “The Windy City”. Ansaroff is surging at the moment with a four-fight win streak. She defeated former title challenger Claudia Gadelha via unanimous decision in her last contest at UFC 231 in December.

The winner of this bout could very well be next in line to challenge for the strap. Also, the report includes that a flyweight bout between Katlyn Chookagian and Joanne Calderwood will take place on the card. Chookagian had a three-fight win streak snapped by Jessica Eye in December. However, Calderwood is going strong off back-to-back victories.

Her latest being a unanimous decision win over Ariane Lipski at UFC on ESPN+ 1 this past January. In a very young and thin women’s flyweight division, every victory is crucial in hopes of securing a title opportunity. UFC 238 goes down live from the United Center in Chicago, Illinois on Saturday, June 8, 2019.
