UFC reaches out to El Paso MMA champ Cynthia Arceo

El Pasoan Cynthia Arceo is the MMA King of the Cage strawweight champion.

El Paso's Cynthia Arceo is on the fast track. The MMA King of the Cage strawweight champ says she's being closely watched by UFC scouts.

"They've contacted me and they've been sending scouts to my fights," Arceo tells CBS4. "They (UFC) are definitely interested, but first, I have to honor my contract with King of the Cage, which expires in September."

Arceo only has four career professional fights. She captured the vacant King of the Cage strawweight belt back in February. She makes her first title defense at Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, California Sunday night.
