UFC Fight Night 72: Jessica Andrade vs Sarah Moras booked for July 15 in San Diego

It's the ladies time to shine ...

The UFC Fight Night 72 event on FOX Sports 1 is starting to take shape, as Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) officials announced the addition of an intriguing bout in the women's bantamweight division.

No. 13-ranked Jessica Andrade will put her mixed martial arts (MMA) skills to the test when she challenges Sarah Moras in San Diego, Calif., on July 15, 2015 from inside Valley View Casino Center.

Andrade will look to get back in the win column after getting wrecked and eventually choked out by Marion Reneau at UFC Fight Night 61 earlier this year. The loss killed the Brazilian's momentum, snapping her three-fight win streak.

As for Moras, not much has been seen or heard from her after making a successful Octagon debut nearly one year ago by taking out Alex Defresne at The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 19 Finale.

UFC Fight Night 72 will feature a hard-hitting heavyweight showdown between former division champion Frank Mir and Todd Duffee (read more on that fight here). Also on the card, Bobby Green will face Al Iaquinta in lightweight action, while Tony Ferguson will look to retire Josh Thomson once and for all.
