Jessica Aguilar will lock horns with Jodie Esquibel in a strawweight pairing at UFC Fight Night 131 in Utica, N.Y., on June 1.

Promotion officials recently confirmed the matchup. UFC Fight Night 131 takes place at the Adirondack Bank Center and is headlined by a pivotal bantamweight showdown pitting Jimmie Rivera against Marlon Moraes. The card airs on Fox Sports 1 following early prelims on UFC Fight Pass.

Aguilar, the former World Series of Fighting 115-pound queen, is still searching for her first Octagon victory. After dropping a unanimous verdict to Claudia Gadelha in her debut at UFC 190, “Jag” was outpointed by Cortney Casey-Sanchez in her most recent outing at UFC 211 in May 2017.

Esquibel, meanwhile, made her first promotional appearance at UFC Fight Night 118 in October, when she lost a unanimous decision to former title challenger Karolina Kowalkiewicz. Prior to that, the Jackson-Wink MMA representative went 4-2 during a four-year stint with Invicta FC.
