UFC Fight Night in Maine has gotten another fight booked for their August event. Invicta FC bantamweight champion Lauren Murphy will put her undefeated streak on the line when she faces former number one contender Sara McMann next month.

McMann is coming off the first loss of her career. She was stopped early in the first round against Ronda Rousey earlier this year at UFC 170. She has been out of action since then but will welcome Murphy to the Octagon. McMann’s resume still reads strong as she is an Olympic silver medalist and has defeated the likes of  Shayna Basler and Tonya Evinger.

The champion Murphy went 3-0 under the Invicta banner and captured the belt last December with a win over Miriam Nakamoto. She had been vocal about her lack of action as of late and that seems to have worked as she gets her shot to fight now.

UFC Fight Night 47 in Maine is being headlined by light heavyweight challengers Ryan Bader and Ovince St. Preux. It goes down at the Cross Insurance Center in Bangor. Stay close to ProMMANow ( for more on the event.
