Report: Marion Reneau Slated to Face Yana Kunitskaya at UFC 233

A women’s bantamweight scrap between Marion
Reneau
and Yana
Kunitskaya
is in the works for UFC 233
in Anaheim, California. First reporting the matchup on Thursday was
Damon Martin of MMAnytt.

Former
Invicta Fighting Championships
bantamweight queen Kunitskaya
(11-4, 1 NC) recently defeated Lina
Lansberg
by decision, where the return to her natural weight
class of 135 paid off. Prior to that win, “Foxy” started her

Ultimate Fighting Championship
tenure with an unsuccessful
featherweight contest this March, where she was stopped in the
first round by Cristiane
Justino
.

Across from her in the Octagon will be Reneau (9-4-1), who last
dropped a decision to Cat Zingano
in July, breaking a four-fight unbeaten streak dating back to 2016.
“The Belizean Bruiser” celebrates the third most stoppage victories
in the UFC women’s bantamweight history with 4, trailing only
Amanda
Nunes
(7) and Ronda
Rousey
(6).

Taking place at the Honda Center on Jan. 26, UFC 223 will
reportedly be headlined by a bantamweight title fight between
T.J.
Dillashaw
and Henry
Cejudo
, with the latter moving up from flyweight.
