A women’s bantamweight clash between Larissa Pacheco and Germaine de Randamie has been added to UFC 185.
Ultimate Fighting Championship officials announced the pairing on Wednesday. Headlined by a lightweight title fight between champion Anthony Pettis and top contender Rafael dos Anjos, the pay-per-view takes place March 14 at American Airlines Center in Dallas.
Pacheco, 20, entered the UFC undefeated but was submitted by Jessica Andrade at UFC Fight Night “Bigfoot vs. Arlovski 2.” All 10 of Pacheco’s victories have come by way of finish.
De Randamie, 30, has been out of action for more than a year, last competing against Amanda Nunes at UFC “Fight for the Troops 3.” The technical knockout loss was her first under the UFC banner, putting an end to a two-fight winning streak that included a victory over Julie Kedzie at UFC on Fox 8.
