Strawweights Yazmin Jauregui, Ketlen Souza to Meet at UFC 306

July 8, 2024
Yazmin Jauregui will square off against Ketlen Souza at UFC 306 on Sept. 14.

Multiple outlets confirmed the strawweight booking following an initial report from ESPN Deportes. UFC 306 takes place at The Sphere in Las Vegas and will be a celebration of Mexican Independence Day. A headliner has not been announced for the card.

Jauregui has been victorious in 11 of her first 12 professional appearances. She is 3-1 in UFC competition and is coming off a three-round verdict over Sam Hughes at UFC Fight Night 237. Her lone defeat was a 20-second TKO loss to Denise Gomes at UFC 290.

A former Invicta FC flyweight champion, Souza has split her first two UFC bouts. After suffering a first-round submission loss to Karine Silva in her Octagon debut, the 29-year-old Brazilian rebounded with a decision win over Marnic Mann at UFC on ESPN 55.
