With the UFC set for their first trip to San Antonio, Texas in five years on July 20th, UFC on ESPN 4 has added two important bouts to its fight card.
Coming off of a submission win over Bethe Correia at UFC 237 just over a week ago, Irene Aldana (10-4) is now booked to face former bantamweight title challenger Raquel Pennington (9-7) while heavyweights Andrei Arlovski (27-18, 2 NC) and Ben Rothwell (36-11) will face off for the second time, 11 years since their first meeting.
