Holm Out, Evans-Smith Debuts at UFC 181

 
The UFC debut of highly-touted newcomer Holly Holm will have to wait, as the former world boxing champion and undefeated MMA bantamweight has suffered an injury that has forced her removal from her UFC 181 bout against Raquel Pennington.

Stepping in to face "Rocky" in Las Vegas will be debuting California prospect Ashlee Evans-Smith, who brings a perfect 3-0 record and a lengthy amateur slate into the Octagon against TUF 18 alum Pennington.

Tickets for UFC 181 are on sale now.
