The Holm vs. Pennington 2 fight was initially scheduled for UFC 243: Whittaker vs. Adesanya held in Melbourne early October. The bout fell off a week before the event due to injury sustained by “The Preacher’s Daughter”, which forced her to withdraw from the contest.

Pennington and Holm first met in February 2015 in LA. After three rounds of women’s MMA the latter won the fight by split decision (29-28, 28-29, 30-27).

Holly Holm (12-5), who shocked the world in 2015 when she knocked out Ronda Rousey with head kick, was last seen in action this past July when she was stopped in the first round by the reigning champion in the division Amanda Nunes. Before that the former titleholder scored a unanimous decision against Megan Anderson.

Raquel Pennington (10-7), former title challenger, won her previous bout in July by split decision against Irene Aldana. Prior to that she suffered two defeats in a row: by unanimous decision against Germaine de Randamie and by fifth-round TKO against Nunes in the championship bout.

In the main event of UFC 246 Conor McGregor goes up against Donald Cerrone. The pair meets in a non-title bout at welterweight.

In addition to the Holm vs. Pennington 2 bout, the list of announced to date matchups can be found below. The co-main event, other bouts and fight order is expected to be officially announced by the promotion in the coming weeks.
