The UFC has decided to reschedule a flyweight bout between Gillian Robertson and Miranda Maverick. The two were scheduled to compete at UFC 258 before Robertson fell ill the day of the fight. FighterPath was the first to break the news and both fighters confirmed the bout shortly thereafter on social media.
Gillian Robertson and Miranda Maverick Rebooked for March 27 After UFC 258 Cancellation
Gillian Robertson (9-5, 6-3 UFC) will be looking to rebound from her December defeat to Taila Santos. The defeat dropped her out of the flyweight rankings and in much need of a victory. Prior to the defeat, the Canadian picked up consecutive victories over Poliana Botelho and Cortney Casey.
Miranda Maverick (8-2, 1-0 UFC) will be making her second UFC appearance after she defeated Liana Jojua in her UFC debut. The former Invicta FC Phoenix tournament winner will be looking to extend her winning streak to five. A win here would likely earn the 23-year-old a spot in the flyweight rankings.
