UFC on Fox 19 is shaping up to have a pretty mean fight card. Recent days have seen big additions in the lightweight and light heavyweight divisions, and now there's an intriguing strawweight fight to add to the mix. Coming off of her big win over Paige VanZant, Rose Namajunas will face the women that handed her a loss in 2013 - Tecia Torres.

Namajunas (4-2, 2-1 UFC) is on a two-fight winning streak, the last of which came via submission over the aforementioned VanZant. Torres (7-0, 3-0 UFC) is coming off a decision win over Jocelyn Jones-Lybarger in December.

The two ladies tussled for the first time at Invicta FC 6 in July 2013. Torres won that bout by unanimous decision.

UFC on Fox 19 goes down on April 16th in a location to be determined. Other fights scheduled for the event include Khabib Nurmagomedov vs. Tony Ferguson, Rashad Evans vs. Shogun Rua, and Michael Chiesa vs. Beneil Dariush.
