Cortney Casey vs. J.J. Aldrich set for UFC Vegas 21

A flyweight matchup between Cortney Casey and J.J. Aldrich has been added to the UFC Vegas 21 lineup.

The bout appears on the TV listings for the upcoming event—which is set to take place March 13 at the UFC APEX—and MMA Fighting confirmed the booking with sources close to the situation.

Casey is set to make her 13th octagon appearance and is looking to get back on track. The 33-year-old kicked off her 2020 campaign with a submission win over Mara Borella at UFC Jacksonville in May. In her most recent fight, Casey was submitted by Gillian Robertson at UFC on ESPN 11 in June. She was scheduled to face Priscila Cachoeira in October before Cachoeira was forced to withdraw the day before following weigh cutting issues.

Aldrich is 4-3 in her UFC tenure, which includes decision wins over Chan Mi Jeon, Danielle Taylor, Polyana Viana and Lauren Mueller. In her most recent appearance, the 28-year-old lost a split decision to Sabina Mazo at UFC 246.

UFC Vegas 21 will be headlined by a welterweight matchup between Leon Edwards and Belal Muhammad.
