Wu Yanan will be fighting at UFC on ABC 1 after all.
The Chinese fighter will take on UFC newcomer Joselyne Edwards, who will replace an injured Bethe Correia for the Jan. 16 event. UFC on ABC 1 takes place in Abu Dhabi. The main card airs on ABC and ESPN following prelims on ESPN+.
The news was announced by the promotion on Wednesday.
Yanan (11-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) looks to bounce back from her second UFC defeat, a split decision loss to Mizuki Inoue in August 2019. The 24-year-old competitor made her UFC debut in late 2017 and has only competed three times in the octagon.
Edwards (9-2 MMA, 0-0 UFC), from Panama, is 8-1 in her past nine bouts. She most recently competed in August and picked up a first-round TKO win .
