After exciting UFC debuts, strawweights Seohee Ham and Cortney Casey will both make their second walk to the Octagon on November 28 as a bout added to the UFC Fight Night event at the Olympic Gymnastics Arena in Seoul, South Korea.
UFC Fight Night is headlined by the pivotal welterweight bout pitting former lightweight champion "Smooth" Benson Henderson against perennial 170-pound contender Thiago “Pitbull” Alves. Plus, legendary striker Mirko Cro Cop returns for the first time since his huge knockout win over Gabriel Gonzaga in April when he meets hard-charging heavyweight Anthony "Freight Train" Hamilton.
Fighting out of Busan, 28-year-old Seohee Ham (15-6) is the first woman from South Korea to compete in the UFC, and the veteran kickboxer has won six of her last seven bouts, with the only loss a hard-fought decision against Joanne Calderwood last December.
The 28-year-old Casey (4-2), who makes her home in Maui, Hawaii, also fell just short against Scotland's Calderwood, with their July matchup earning Fight of the Night honors. But with a full training camp under her belt, Casey will be bringing the heat against Ham from start to finish this November.
