Suarez vs Ansaroff Booked For UFC 238 In Chicago
Undefeated (7-0, 4-0 UFC) women’s Strawweight wrecking machine Tatiana Suarez will make her her return to action on June 8 as she has been booked to face off against Nina Ansaroff at the upcoming UFC 238 pay-per-view (PPV) event according to MMA Fighting.
Tatiana is coming off another dominant performance, shutting down former division champion Carla Esparza at UFC 228 last September to earn her fourth straight win inside the Octagon. Nina, meanwhile, has been on a tear herself, winning four in a row including her latest win over former title contender, Claudia Gadelha, at UFC 231 last December.
The two talented women currently share the No. 3 spot on the official UFC rankings, so a win here should be enough to give the victor the boost to surpass former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk for the No. 2 spot. Furthermore, with Jessica Andrade (No. 1) lined up to face champion Rose Namajunas at UFC 237 in a few months, Suarez and Ansaroff should be fighting for the next shot at the title.
Also, Joanne Calderwood will look to make it three in a row as she will face Katlyn Chookagian in women’s Flyweight action. UFC 238 currently doesn’t have an official headliner, but recent reports suggest Valentina Shevchenko could defend her Flyweight belt against Jessica Eye at the event.
