UFC Fortaleza has added a women’s bantamweight matchup to the March 11 card.
It’s an opportunity for the 39-year-old Reneau – who called out 33 year-old Corriea in late 2016 – to leapfrog into the top 10 of the division.
Welcome back to The Crossfire.
Both fighters have rebounded from two-fight losing skids with victories.
