Julie Kedzie at UFC 94Ever since the UFC added the women’s bantamweight division to its roster, bouts featuring women have trickled onto upcoming fight cards. The latest features Julie Kedzie vs. Germaine de Randamie.

FoxSports.com first reported the bout, which was later confirmed by UFC officials.

Kedzie vs. de Randamie will take place on the UFC on Fox 8 fight card slated for July 27 in Seattle.

Kedzie (16-11) is popular among fans, but perhaps more so than many of the other women debuting in the Octagon, needs to make an immediate impression. She lost both of her Strikeforce bouts  – to Miesha Tate and Alexis Davis – before making the move with many of the other 135-pound Strikeforce women to the UFC.

A former kickboxing world champion, de Randamie (3-2) went 2-1 during her Strikeforce tenure. The fight with Kedzie marks her return to 135 pounds after fighting at 145 in her last two bouts.

The UFC on Fox 8 event takes place at the KeyArena in Seattle, but has yet to land a main event. UFC flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson, feverishly working to return from injury, has been lobbying for the main event as he currently fights out of neighboring Kirkland, Wash.

    If the women are so good, make an all women PPV! Let the fans judge with their money.

        There have only been TWO WMMA fights in the UFC. Cowards hide behind guest user names. As for Other… No one in the main stream has ever heard of Invicta. Nobody! My point is simple, you could put a full card of WMMA titles in one PPV(I know there is only one right now) and it won’t sell like the men.

    Really like Julie. Hope she does well.

      I agree. She was whooping Meisha Tate’s ass til she got caught in that submission. She still has some great fights to give.

    julie needs to take it to the ground, she cannot hang with de Randamie in the stand up.

  • JOE SHINE
