Valentina Shevchenko vs. Julianna Pena will headline UFC on Fox 23, according to a new report by FoxSports.com.
Shevchenko (13–2) beat Holly Holm by unanimous decision in the main event of UFC on Fox 20 on July 23, 2016. Pena (8–2) beat Cat Zingano by unanimous decision at UFC 200 over the summer.
It's believed the winner of Shevchenko vs. Pena will meet the winner of Amanda Nunes vs. Ronda Rousey [which will headline UFC 207 later this month] for the UFC women's bantamweight championship but that has not been confirmed.
UFC on Fox 23 will take place on January 28, 2017 from the Pepsi Center in Denver, Colorado. We'll have complete coverage here at WrestlingNewsWorld.com.
