Marina Rodriguez-Amanda Lemos Added to Growing UFC 280 Lineup

Any one of the fights booked thus far for the Ultimate Fighting Championship’s October return to “Fight Island” could headline an event.

The UFC 280 event on Oct. 22 continues to swell with talent and scintillating, as Combate reported on Thursday that a likely strawweight title eliminator will join its billing. Marina Rodriguez (16-1-2) will be taking on Amanda Lemos (12-2-1) in a pivotal 115-pound clash, and the victor should almost certainly crack into the title picture. The UFC’s broadcast partner of ESPN confirmed this booking shortly after its announcement on Thursday.
