Former Invicta title challenger Mizuki Inoue is now a member of the UFC roster.
The 24-year-old Japanese strawweight won’t have to wait long for her promotional debut. With Luana Carolina out, Inoue will replace the Brazilian and take on Wu Yanan at UFC on ESPN+ 15.
UFC on ESPN+ 15 is currently headlined by UFC women’s strawweight champion Jessica Andrade (20-6 MMA, 11-4 UFC) and challenger Weili Zhang (10-3 MMA, 6-4 UFC). If she wins in her home country, Zhang could become the first Asian champion in the promotion’s history.
