Joselyne Edwards replaces Nicco Montano, fights Karol Rosa at UFC Fight Night 184

Nicco Montano won’t compete in the cage on the next UFC event.

Montano, a former UFC women’s flyweight champion, has withdrawn from her Feb. 6 bout against Karol Rosa at UFC Fight Night 184. Montano, who pulled out for undisclosed undisclosed reasons, has been replaced by Joselyne Edwards.

MMA Junkie confirmed the news Tuesday following an initial report by Milenio.

Edwards (10-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) made her debut 11 days ago on Jan. 16, stepping up on short notice to take on Wu Yanan in a bantamweight contest. Edwards won the fight via unanimous decision, making her the first fighter from Panama to earn a victory in the UFC.

Meanwhile, Brazil’s Rosa (13-3 MMA, 2-0 UFC) last fought in August 2020, outpointing Vanessa Melo at UFC 251. The 26-year-old is on a four-fight winning streak.
