An exciting women’s bantamweight bout is heading for an upcoming UFC Fight Night event.
Two fighters looking to break into the official promotional rankings are set to clash as Jessica-Rose Clark is set to meet Stephanie Egger on Feb. 19. The event does not yet have a confirmed location or venue.
Clark and her new management team, Iridium Sports Agency, announced the matchup via social media on Wednesday evening.
Clark (11-6 MMA, 4-2 UFC) will look to make it three straight after stopping Sarah Alpar in September 2020 and securing a unanimous decision over Joselyne Edwards in October 2021. Prior to a back-to-back skid against Jessica Eye and Pannie Kiandzad, Clark picked up consecutive wins over Bec Rawlings and Paige VanZant.
Egger (6-2 MMA, 1-1 UFC) picked up her first victory with the promotion at UFC Fight Night 193, where she finished Shanna Young via TKO by elbows in the second round. The win was an impressive rebound from her debut decision loss to Tracy Cortez a year prior.
With the addition, the Feb. 19 lineup includes:
Kyle Daukaus vs. Julian Marquez
Jessica-Rose Clark vs. Stephanie Egger
Chad Anheliger vs. Jesse Strader
Austin Lingo vs. Jonathan Pearce
Mario Bautista vs. Khalid Taha
Chas Skelly vs. Mark Striegl
Nasrat Haqparast vs. TBA
