A women’s strawweight bout between Felice Herrig and Cortney Casey is apparently the first fight on tap for December’s UFC 218 lineup.

Herrig (13-6 MMA, 4-1 UFC) today revealed the matchup with Casey (7-4 MMA, 3-3 UFC) on social media (via Instagram). UFC brass has yet to make an official announcement.

Nice matchup. After seeing how their UFC careers began it's hard to believe these two have both made complete 180s. Felice is 4-1 in the UFC but coming off the TUF show I really didn't have much confidence in her. Now she's on a 3 fight win streak. Casey is harder to believe. Starting out 0-2 with a loss against Seo Hee Ham and now she's 3-1 in her last 4 against really good competition. Should be a good fight.

I agree! Remember Herrig/Curran was a HB at one point for a fox show. Since that fight she's been on fire, beating the crap out of these girls.

The winner of this fight needs and deserves to get that next push, Top 5 opponent would not be out of line at all for the winner.

No kidding! I'm hearing Cyborg/Holm. And possibly Khabib/Barboza.

I swear Felice is one of the very few skinny chicks I think is hot...she's a better fighter than Casey and should win the match but she is also a head Cas so we'll have to see how she performs.

I've been pretty impressed by Casey so far, this is a great matchup. I think Casey has more heart and may take this later on

Tough fight either way, I think Casey might have the size advantage and because of that I might end of taking her, but Felice has a better BJJ ground game and the striking isn't that far off, so who knows.

I totally would pick Felice overy Courtney because Felice whooped the shit out of her last opponent.
