UFC on ESPN+ 27: Felicia Spencer takes on Zarah Fairn

The UFC recently confirmed that Canadian women’s featherweight Felicia Spencer (7-1-0) will take on Frenchwoman Zarah Fairn (6-3-0) at Norfolk’s UFC on ESPN+ 27 event in February 2020.

Spencer, 29, a former Invicta FC product, surprised many with debut submission win over Megan Anderson at UFC on ESPN+ 10 in May and her competitive performance despite suffering her first loss against Cris Cyborg at UFC 240 in July.

Meanwhile, Fairn, 33, had a three fight win streak snapped by Meagan Anderson in her octagon debut at UFC 243 in October. While there are no current official UFC featherweight rankings, both fighters need a good win to build some critical momentum.

UFC on ESPN+ 27 is scheduled for Feb. 29, 2020 at the Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Virginia. Scheduled bouts include:

Joseph Benavidez (28-5-0) vs. Deiveson Figueiredo (17-1-0)

Brendan Allen (13-3-0) vs. Tom Breese (11-1-0)

Gabriel Silva (8-1-0) vs. Kyler Philipps (6-1-0)

Alex Oliveira (19-8-1) vs. Mickey Gall (6-2-0)

Megan Anderson (10-4-0) vs. Norma Dumont Viana (4-0-0)

More bouts are scheduled to be announced.
