Evinger has competed under the UFC banner before as she was one of the contestants for The Ultimate Fighter: Team Rousey vs. Team Tate in 2013, but was knocked out in the elimination round. Evinger submitted Kunitskaya with a rear-naked choke in their March rematch. "I even said I'd go down to 125, but the opportunity was at 145 and I'm definitely willing to beat up on some '45ers".

In her last 11 bouts, Evinger has compiled an impressive 10-0-1 record, while defending her 135-pound title three consecutive times to date. As for Tonya, she's a great opponent. "I think my style is really unpredictable". "My fans appreciate the fact that this fight is going to be for the belt, but the fact that the UFC had [Germaine de Randamie] as champion and not me has never been a problem for me". "I'm prepared to fight anyone. Maybe when Conor Mcgregor returns in December we could give the fans that fight".

UFC 214 is headlined by UFC light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier and former champion Jon Jones in what will settle the score for the light heavyweight division once and for all.
