Former women’s featherweight title challenger Felicia Spencer has a new opponent later this month.

Danyelle Wolf (1-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) was set to make her UFC debut against Spencer (8-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 188. But with Wolf out, Spencer instead will take on Norma Dumont (5-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC). UFC officials announced the change Thursday.

UFC Fight Night 188 takes place May 22 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card streams on ESPN+.

Dumont was supposed to fight Erin Blanchfield in a bantamweight bout a month ago. But she came in heavy for the second straight time and the Nevada Athletic Commission canceled the fight. Now she’ll move up to featherweight. This past November, she rebounded from a loss to Megan Anderson with a decision win over Ashlee Evans-Smith.

Spencer, a former Invicta FC featherweight champion, fell short in her pursuit of UFC gold when she lost a unanimous decision to two-division champion Amanda Nunes in June 2020. The Canadian has split her four octagon appearances, including finishes of Megan Anderson and Zarah Fairn Dos Santos.

Three-time USA national boxing champion Wolf punched her ticket to the UFC when she defeated Taneisha Tennant by unanimous decision at Dana White’s Contender Series 33 this past September. It what was her first MMA fight. But now her UFC debut is on hold.

  • Rob Font vs. Cody Garbrandt
