A pivotal 125-pound matchup is brewing for UFC Fight Night 153 in Greenville. A bout between fan favorites Montana De La Rosa and Andrea Lee is in the works for the UFC's June 22 South Carolina debut, sources tell FloCombat.
Arlington, Texas's De La Rosa is undefeated thus far in her UFC career through three promotional appearances. After a tenure on The Ultimate Fighter 26, De La Rosa kicked off her UFC career in style, submitting Cristina Marks in exactly two minutes at the TUF 26 Finale.
From there, the 24-year-old Genesis BJJ product continued her finishing streak, submitting Rachael Ostovich at the TUF 27 Finale. Making it three for three in her last outing, De La Rosa then submitted Nadia Kassem at UFC 234 in February.
De La Rosa's opponent Lee has mirrored much of De La Rosa success. The former LFA champion doesn't yet have the finishing credentials of De La Rosa in the UFC, but she has been able to get the job done in both of her UFC outings.
"KGB" has gone the distance in both of her UFC appearances, defeating Veronica Macedo and Ashlee Evans-Smith.
