The women’s bantamweight scrap joins a bill topped by a pivotal middleweight showdown between Michael Bisping and Mark Munoz. The Oct. 26 event airs live on Fox Sports 1 and takes place at Phones4U Arena in Manchester.
Sexton, 36, recently saw a three-fight winning streak snapped by Alexis Davis, who outpointed “The Surgeon” this in June at UFC 161. Prior to that setback, Sexton earned a trio of victories under the Cage Warriors banner, topping Roxanne Modafferi and Aisling Daly before inking her UFC deal.
