Jessica Aguilar Signs with UFC, Meeting Claudia Gadelha at UFC 190

Bantamweight Headliners Ronda Rousey (11-0) and Bethe Correia (9-0) won’t be the only women fighting at UFC 190 on August 1.

It was announced this morning by Brazilian news outlet Combate that strawweight Jessica Aguilar (19-4) has inked a deal with the UFC, and will be making her promotional debut against Claudia Gadelha (12-1).

Everyone has been waiting for veteran JAG to sign with the UFC since her requested release from WSOF a few weeks ago, and wondering what was taking the organization so long to snag arguably the world’s top strawweight.claudiagadelha

Aguilar comes to UFC 190 with a ten-fight victory streak. Gadelha last fought at “UFC on Fox: dos Santos vs. Miocic” in December, where she lost to Strawweight Champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk (9-0). She was slated to meet Aisling Daly (15-6) at UFC Fight Night 64, but pulled out due to a reported injury.

What a great fight this will be. What a stacked card this is becoming.
