UFC officials today announced the addition of Amanda Cooper (2-3 MMA, 1-2 UFC) vs. Angela Magana (11-8 MMA, 0-2 UFC), as well as Jeremy Kimball (15-6 MMA 1-1 UFC) vs. Dominick Reyes (7-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC).
Featuring a featherweight title fight between champ Max Holloway and former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar, UFC 218 takes place Dec. 2 at Little Caesars Arena in Detroit. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
“ABC” Cooper was a finalist on “The Ultimate Fighter 23, ” ultimately falling short against Tatiana Suarez in the July 2016 live finale. Cooper has since split two additional results, earning a decision win over Anna Elmose at UFC Fight Night 99 before being submitted by Cynthia Calvillo at UFC 209. She now meets Magana, the outspoken cast member of “The Ultimate Fighter 20” who has suffered losses to Michelle Waterson and Tecia Torres in her two official UFC contests.
Kimball made his UFC debut in January, suffering a TKO loss to Marcos Rogerio de Lima, before rebounding with a “Performance of the Night” win over Josh Stansbury in June. He now faces Reyes, an undefeated prospect who needed just 29 seconds to pick up a “Performance of the Night” bonus with a victory over Joachim Christensen at the same June event where Stansbury picked up his $50,000.
