Germaine de Randamie has been added to the list of participants of the UFC Fight Night in Ahoy on september 2. That has the vechtsportorganisatie announced on Thursday.

In Rotterdam, take De Randamie in the bantamgewichtsklasse against Marion Reneau. The American won seven of its previous eleven fights.

De Randamie was in February the first Dutch woman with a world title in MMA. New York defeated the American Holly Holm.

The 33-year-old Utrecht is soon, however, dethroned as world champion. They refused into the ring against challenger Cris ‘Cyborg’ Justino due to the dopingverleden of the Brazilian. Cyborg takes the end of this month on Tonya Evinger for the vacant world title in the featherweight.

The performance at the Fight Night in the Rotterdam hall is the sixth fight for The Randamie in UFC. Of her previous matches, she lost only one.
