Two fighters with a combined 29 pro wins will make their Octagon debuts against one another this Saturday at UFC 216, as Kalindra Faria faces off against Mara Romero Borella.
Originally, Faria (18-5-1) was signed to face Legacy Fighting Alliance champion Andrea Lee, but USADA pulled Lee due to a previous failed drug test.
Faria has won three in a row, including a victory last year over Carina Damm for the Titan FC bantamweight title. Of her 18 career wins, 13 have been finishes.
Borella (11-4) scored a decision vs. Milana Dudieva at Invicta FC 24 recently and is on a five-fight win streak of her own.
