Multiple Fights Announced For UFC Sacramento Card
UFC returns to Sacramento on July 13th, at the Golden 1 Center with the UFC Sacramento card.

It is now being reported that the inaugural UFC Women’s Flyweight Champion Nicco Montano (4-2) will make her return to the Octagon at UFC Sacramento. As per the reports, the former champion, who was stripped of her title, will face former bantamweight title challenger Sara McMann (11-5), with Montano moving up a weight class.
Elsewhere, Darren Elkins is expected to return in July, to fight Ryan Hall. Elkins (24-7) lost his previous two fights to Ricardo Lamas and Alexander Volkanovski respectively, after racking up six straight wins.
