Crys Cyborg to fight at UFC 240 per Dana White

UFC president Dana White has just confirmed that a fight between former UFC women featherweight champion Crys Cyborg (20-2) and Felicia Spencer (7-0) is being finalized for UFC 240 this July.

The event is scheduled to take place on July 27 in Canada with Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar headling the night.

“I’m excited about this Edmonton card. Max Holloway vs. Frankie Edgar is a great main event, and now we have Cris Cyborg vs. Felicia Spencer in the co-main event,” White told ESPN.

“Felicia is undefeated at 7-0, a former Invicta world champion, coming off a very impressive first-round finish over a top 3-ranked Megan Anderson. I can’t wait for this fight.”

The 33-years-old “Cyborg” is coming off of her first UFC defeat. The Brazilan lost her title in December when Amanda Nunes KO’d her in the very first round. “Feenom” on the other hand, won her UFC debut bout earlier this month when she submitted Megan Anderson.

It’s worth mentioning that the fight with Spencer is the final fight of Cyborg’s current UFC contract.
