Bantamweights are on tap for the UFC’s upcoming event on Sept. 5.
A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie after an initial report from ESPN. The person asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement.
In her most recent fight, Chiasson (6-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) rebounded from her first career loss to Lina Lansberg. At UFC on ESPN+ 25, Eubanks defeated Shanna Young by unanimous decision. In six professional victories, Chiasson has racked up four finishes.
