Germaine de Randamie Returns As Three More Fights Confirmed for UFC’s Return to Denver
The upcoming UFC Fight Night card in Denver celebrating the promotion’s 25th anniversary has just added three new bouts including the long awaited return of former champion Germaine de Randamie.
The card takes place on Nov. 10 from the Pepsi Center in Denver.
That night, de Randamie will return to bantamweight for a fight against former title contender Raquel Pennington, who will be fighting close to home in Colorado.
De Randamie hasn’t fought since he defeated Holly Holm to become the first ever UFC women’s featherweight champion before relinquishing the title and moving back to 135 pounds.
Meanwhile, two more women’s strawweight fights were also added to the card in Denver.
“Ultimate Fighter” veterans Amanda Cooper and Ashley Yoder will face off while Maycee Barber, who recently earned her UFC contract after competing on Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series, takes on Maia Stevenson.
UFC Fight Night from Denver is headlined by a featherweight showdown between Frankie Edgar and “The Korean Zombie” Chan Sung Jung.
