The UFC have confirmed that Irish Aisling Daly will take on Brazilian Erika Almeida in a Strawweight bout, October 24th at UFC Dublin.
Aisling Daly (15-6) appeared in TUF 20 and went on to win her UFC debut defeating Alex Chambers by armbar at The TUF Finale. Since her debut she then went on to loose her next fight against Randa Markos by decision at UFC 186. Daly is a brown belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and trains at SBG alongside teammates Conor McGregor, Cathal Pendred and Paddy Holohan who all racked up wins when the UFC went to Dublin last year. She has won eight fights in her career by submission and has won two out of her last four fights, both by armbar.
Erika Almeida (7-1) is a newcomer to the promotion and is coming off a decision loss in her UFC debut against Juliana De Lima Carneiro back in May. That loss was the first in her career and has previously won all but one of her wins by submission.
UFC Fight Night 76 will take place at the 3Arena in Dublin, Oct 24th.
