Jinh Yu Frey and Kay Hansen are now members of the UFC strawweight roster.

The Invicta FC staples have signed with the promotion and are expected to face off against one another Saturday at UFC on ESPN 12. Oren Hodak of KO Reps management, which represents Frey, confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie on Sunday.

Frey (9-4 MMA, 0-0 UFC), a former Invicta champion, alluded to her signing in an Instagram post Sunday. Hansen (6-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) announced her signing outright.

A professional since 2013, Frey has competed largely under the Invicta banner, with stops in RIZIN and Road FC along the way. In February, Frey defeated Ashley Cummins by unanimous decision. However, she was stripped of her title upon missing weight prior to the fight.

At 20, Hansen becomes the second youngest fighter on the UFC’s roster – one year the elder of Chase Hooper. Entering her UFC debut, Hansen won back-to-back fights against Nicolle Caliari and Liana Pirosin.

UFC on ESPN 12 takes place Saturday at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The event will simulcast on ESPN and ESPN+.

With the addition, the UFC on ESPN 12 lineup now includes:

  • Dustin Poirier vs. Dan Hooker
  • Mickey Gall vs. Mike Perry
