UFC Announces Partial Boise Fight Card
For the first time ever, UFC is coming to Boise and it's expected to present some amazing match ups.
The UFC unveiled the matchups Friday for the UFC's debut in Idaho.
Zingano (9-3) rides a three-fight losing streak into the event dating back to her 2015 setback at the hands of Ronda Rousey. The 35-year-old fighter returned from a nearly two-year layoff at UFC 222 and suffered a split decision loss to Ketlen Vieira in her most recent outing.
She’ll look to right her ship against Reneau (9-3-1), a 40-year-old contender who is unbeaten over her last four UFC bouts.
Reneau’s recent run has been highlighted by KO/TKO stoppages over Milana Dudieva and Talita Bernardo, plus the biggest win of her career — a second-round submission over Sara McMann — which she scored in February at UFC on Fox 28.
In addition to Zingano vs. Reneau, the UFC announced a women’s flyweight bout between Liz Carmouche (11-6) and former Invicta FC champion Jennifer Maia (15-4-1) for UFC Boise, as well as a flyweight bout between Justin Scoggins (11-4) and UFC newcomer Said Nurmagomedov (11-1).
Carmouche, 34, lost her flyweight debut in December via split decision to Alexis Davis. Maia, 29, a UFC debutante who was the former 125-pound champion of Invicta FC, has won six consecutive fights, including a split decision over Roxanne Modafferi.
Scoggins, 25, has lost back-to-back contests via second-round submission. Nurmagomedov, 26, is a friend and countryman of Khabib Nurmagomedov’s but is unrelated to the UFC lightweight champion. He rides a five-fight win streak into his Octagon debut.
UFC Boise takes place at the CenturyLink Arena in Boise, Idaho. A main event for the card has yet to be announced
