The UFC announced the bout on Monday. Kowalkiewicz (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) will be fighting outside of Poland for only the third time in her MMA career; her first five bouts were contested in Poland until she made her Invicta FC debut, following that, she fought for KSW, in Poznan, Poland, and most recently made her UFC debut in Florida where she took a decision victory over Randa Markos. Kowalkiewicz was originally a women's flyweight coming into the UFC but opted to change weight classes in order to feature in the biggest promotion in MMA, and is now fighting at strawweight. Clark (7-4 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter 20 on Team Melendez and made her UFC debut at The Ultimate Fighter 20 Finale in December of 2014 where she defeated Bec Rawlings via decision. The 35-year-old hasn't fought since then and will be looking to make a statement and prove that she does belong in the UFC. UFC Fight Night 87 takes place live from the Ahoy Rotterdam arena in Rotterdam, Netherlands and is headlined by an explosive heavyweight bout between Alistair Overeem and Andrei Arlovski.
