UFC on FOX 20 gets Felice Herrig versus Kailin Curran in Chicago



herrig-curran-20A strawweight bout pitting one of the true pioneers of women’s MMA, Felice Herrig (10-6), against Hawaii’s Kailin Curran (4-2) has been scheduled to take place in Chicago for UFC on FOX 20.

Herrig will be competing in her home state of Illinois for the first time as a UFC fighter and the first time in her professional mixed martial arts career since all the way back at XFC 39 in 2011 when she bested Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc via unanimous decision.

Curran, who started her career with a 3-0 record, got herself back on track after a 2-fight losing streak late last year by finishing off the ultra tough Emily Kagan via rear naked choke to earn the first finish of her career.
