Jessica Aguilar vs Cortney Casey added to May 13 UFC show

The UFC announced yesterday that Jessica Aguilar vs Cortney Casey has been added to UFC 213 May 13 at American Airlines Arena in Dallas. I expect this fight to air on the prelims. After having success in Bellator and then the WSOF, Jessica has caught the injury bug since coming to the UFC. In her only UFC fight to date, Jessica lost to Claudia Gadelha in Aug. 2015 after suffering a broken foot while training. I know why she didn't pull out but that was the wrong decision. Then she was scheduled to fight Juliana Lima last year and Jessica suffered a knee injury and had surgery. So now she's on the comeback trail. Meanwhile, the UFC still has her ranked #3. Obviously that's based on her past record. That's one reason I don't pay attention to rankings. She's ranked way too high. But fighters pay attention to them. So for Cortney Casey, taking this fight is a no brainer. It's a winnable fight for Cortney against the #3 ranked fighter. Cortney is 2-3 in the UFC. But she has been fairly competitive and I don't think she should be overlooked. So I expect Jessica to be favoured but we could see an upset.
