UFC Fight Night 126: Tonya Evinger vs. Marion Reneau added

Former Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger (19-6-0, 1NC) will return to the octagon at Austin’s UFC Fight Night 126 to face No. 10 Marion Reneau (8-3-1) in February.

Evinger, 36, stepped in on short notice at featherweight to take on Cyborg at UFC 214 in July, coming up short. Until that point, “The Triple Threat” had won 12 consecutive fights. This time, she will return to 135 pounds.

This will be the third fight of 2017 for the 40-year-old Reneau, who stopped Talita Bernado in her last bout at UFC Fight Night 115 in September. She is 1-0-1 thus far this year.

UFC Fight Night 126 is scheduled for Feb. 18 at the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas. Current bouts include:

Derrick Lewis (18-5-0) vs. Marcin Tybura (16-3-0)

Ray Borg (11-3-0) vs. Brandon Moreno (14-4-0)

Tonya Evinger (19-6-0, 1NC) vs. Marion Reneau (8-3-1)
