Tracy Cortez Prepares For Octagon Return

On July 20th, Tracy Cortez will make her first UFC appearance since September, when she squares off with Miranda Maverick in an enticing flyweight matchup at the Apex in Las Vegas.

Cortez is undefeated through 5 straight appearance with the organization, and while Maverick has a more spotted record, she has found success in her last two bouts.

The news was announced earlier this week with a post on Maverick’s Instagram page.

With an opportunity to gain a win over Cortez, who is currently ranked #11 in the 125-pound division, Maverick has the potential to make a significant jump in the standings. Likewise, Cortez also has a lot to gain, as she could very well be looking at a jump into the top-10 if she can achieve victory this Summer.

Prior to her time with the UFC, Cortez most notably fought in Invicta FC. But, following a successful appearance on Dana White’s Contender Series in 2019 she made the jump to the leading promotion. Since then, she has put together an impressive string of wins, and has become a fan favorite in the process.
