Cifers will try to end their losing streak inside the octagon. After winning her first two fights in the organization, she lost the next two. She comes from being finalized by Mackenzie Dern in the UFC Vegas of last March 30.
Agapova had a brief stint at Contender Series and Invicta FC before signing with UFC this year. His only professional loss was against Tracy Cortez in the third season of the Contender Series. He is currently on a two-win streak. In her last fight, she knocked out Marilia Santos at Invicta FC 37.
UFC Fight Night will take place next Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
