Murphy to Face Faszholz in Steel City

 

Former Invicta FC champion Lauren Murphy will have a new opponent for her Sunday bout in Pittsburgh's Consol Energy Center, as Octagon newcomer Kelly Faszholz replaces the injured Sarah Moras in the bantamweight bout.

In the UFC Fight Night main event, which airs live on FOX Sports 1, Donald Cerrone moves up to the welterweight division to face Alex Oliveira.

Looking to pick up her first UFC win after two controversial decision losses, Murphy is eager to make the walk to the Octagon to take on Santa Rosa's Faszholz, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu purple belt who has finished all three of her pro bouts via submission.
