ufc fight night 57

A pair of bouts have been added to the UFC Fight Night 57 card, as Joseph Benavidez meets Dustin Ortiz and Paige VanZant takes on Kailin Curran.

Set for November 22 from the Frank Erwin Center in Austin, Texas, the main card is expected to air on FOX Sports 1.

Benavidez (20-4) will be looking to string together another win streak after defeating Tim Elliott earlier this year. He is 7-2 with the UFC, having lost twice to flyweight champion Demetrious Johnson.

Ortiz (14-3) has won three of four, including two straight over Ray Borg and Justin Scoggins.

VanZant (3-1) suffered an injury that forced her fight with Curran (3-0) to be pushed back six weeks. Both will be making their Octagon debuts.

Below is the current lineup:

Flyweight: Joseph Benavidez vs. Dustin Ortiz

Female Strawweight: Paige VanZant vs. Kailin Curran
