Claudia Gadelha vs Nina Ansaroff announced for UFC 231 in Toronto

A pair of UFC strawweights will clash at UF 231 in Toronto on December 8.  The UFC announced Claudia Gadelha vs Nina Ansaroff for the card via Twitter this afternoon.

Gadelha (16-3), a former UFC strawweight title contender is coming off a narrow split decision win over former champion Carla Esparza at UFC 225 earlier this year.

Ansaroff (9-5), is riding a three-fight win streak with recent victories over Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger, Angela Hill, and Randa Markos.

UFC 231 takes place at the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada and is expected to be headlined by featherweight champion Max Holloway defending against challenger Brian Ortega. The fight has not yet been made official but is in the works after a health scare forced Holloway out of their scheduled title bout earlier this year.
