Bec Rawlings vs. Ashlee Evans-Smith set for UFC 223 in April

Bec Rawlings (7-7 MMA, 2-4 UFC) will no doubt be desperate to halt a three-fight skid when the Aussie flyweight faces Ashlee Evans-Smith (5-3 MMA, 2-3 UFC) in April.

Rawlings last fought at UFC Fight Night 121 in Sydney where she dropped a split points decision to fellow Aussie Jessica-Rose Clark.

Like “Rowdy”, Evans-Smith will also be eager to get back on track after dropping her last two outings, most recently tapping to a Sarah Moras arm-bar at UFC 215 back in September 2017.

The fight, which was revealed by Newsday, takes place on the UFC 223 card on April 7 (April 8 in Australia) at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The event will be headlined by an interim lightweight title fight between Tony Ferguson and Khabib Nurmagomedov.
