UFC officials announced two more fights for UFC 171, which takes place March 15 at the American Airlines Center in Dallas.
In one bout, Dennis Bermudez will take on Jimy Hettes. In the other, Julianna Pena will face Jessica Andrade.
Hettes is coming off an impressive second-round technical submission victory over Rob Whiteford in October 2013. Meanwhile Bermudez comes into the fight with a five-fight winning streak, which includes a “Fight of the Night” performance against Matt Grice back at UFC 157. This should be a good scrap on the ground as both fighters have good ground skills.
In regards to the second fight, Pena comes in with a lot of momentum after becoming the first female fighter to win “The Ultimate Fighter.” Andrade comes into this match after an strong performance over Rosi Sexton. This fight will be a good test for Pena, who is currently 5-2 in her professional career.
