As the rumor mill had suggested, Aisling Daly will in fact face fellow “TUF 20″ strawweight cast member Randa Markos (pictured) at UFC 186.
Daly was originally slated to meet Claudia Gadelha (12-1 MMA, 1-1 UFC) at UFC Fight Night 64, but Gadelha was recently forced to withdraw from the April 11 card.
The UFC announced the switcheroo Tuesday via Twitter.
Daley will be riding a two-fight winning streak into the tango. She submitted Alex Chambers in her official UFC debut in December.
Markos dropped a tough split decision to Jessica Penne that same evening. The 29-year-old has lost two of her last three contests.
Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada hosts the festivities.
Here is the show’s updated roster:
Valerie Letourneau vs. Jessica Rakoczy
Chris Clements vs. Nordine Taleb
Olivier Aubin-Mercier vs. David Michaud
Aisling Daly vs. Randa Markos
Bryan Barberena vs. Chad Laprise
Alexis Davis vs. Sarah Kaufman
Patrick Cote vs. Joe Riggs
Thomas Almeida vs. Yves Jabouin
John Makdessi vs. Abel Trujillo
Michael Bisping vs. C.B. Dollaway
Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Fabio Maldonado
Kyoji Horiguchi vs. Demetrious Johnson (UFC flyweight champion)
