A bout between women strawweight contenders has been added to the UFC 197: Cormier vs. Jones 2 fight card.
Aguilar, a former World Series of Fighting champion, made her promotional debut at UFC 190 in August against Claudia Gadelha in a title eliminator bout. Gadelha won by unanimous decision, ending Aguilar’s 10-fight winning streak. “JAG” hopes to capture her first UFC win when she faces Lima.
Lima made her Octagon debut in July 2014 in a losing effort against current champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk. Since the loss, Lima has put together back-to-back wins and plans to extend her winning streak when she meets Aguilar.
A featherweight clash between Yair Rodriguez (6-1) and Andre Fili (15-3) was also added to the April 23 event.
