Fresh from an upset win over Heather Hardy in May, Canada’s Jessica Camara will return to the ring on August 20 for a pivotal bout against Argentina’s Victoria Bustos that will air on UFC FIGHT PASS. 

The opportunity for Camara came up due to a knee injury that forced IBF 140-pound champion Mary McGee off the card and adding to the high stakes for both is the possibility that the fight may be contested for the vacant WBO junior welterweight bout, pending approval from the sanctioning body.

Rosario’s Bustos has won six of her last eight, with her only defeats in that stretch coming against Katie Taylor and Cecilia Braekhus, while Montreal’s Camara has won four of her last five, a stretch highlighted by her unanimous decision win over Hardy. 

The DiBella Entertainment-promoted card at Sycuan Casino in El Cajon, California is headlined by the WBA junior welterweight title bout between Kali Reis and Diana Prazak and will also feature a welterweight bout to produce a mandatory challenger for the WBA portion of Jessica McCaskill’s undisputed crown as Alma Ibarra, who recently defeated Maricela Cornejo at 160 pounds, returns to 147 to battle the Kandi Wyatt.
