A women’s bantamweight clash pitting Germaine de Randamie against Julianna Pena is in the works for an Ultimate Fighting Championship event on Oct. 3.
MMAFighting.com was first to report the booking. The venue for the event is unknown, as the UFC has yet to make an official announcement regarding the card.
De Randamie last appeared at UFC 245, where she dropped a five-round verdict to Amanda Nunes in a bantamweight title fight on Dec. 14. Prior to that, “The Iron Lady” had compiled a five-bout winning streak in UFC competition that included a brief reign as the promotion’s inaugural featherweight queen.
Pena, meanwhile, returned following more than a two-year absence at UFC Fight Night 155, where she outpointed Nicco Montano a little more than year ago. “The Venezuelan Vixen” has been victorious in five of her six promotional appearances overall.
