The UFC is hoping to book the women's featherweight title fight for UFC 232 on Dec. 29 in Las Vegas, sources confirmed with ESPN.
Nunes posted a signed bout agreement for that event on social media Wednesday night, after Justino tried to persuade her earlier in the day to fight at UFC 228 on Sept. 8.
According to multiple sources, the promotion wants the fight to happen at its year-end show, scheduled to take place at T-Mobile Arena. The fight is expected to be for Justino's 145-pound title.
Looks like Cyborg won't be able to fight until the end of the year. I guess 8 months in between fights can feel like a lifetime.
