An important women’s bantamweight matchup between former champion Germaine de Randamie and Julianna Pena is expected to take place at a UFC event on October 3rd.
MMA Fighting first reported the matchup, though the UFC is yet to confirm the booking. The UFC event on October 3rd is without a venue or location to its name, but it’s likely it will either take place in Las Vegas or Abu Dhabi.
De Randamie (9-4) last fought at UFC 245 in December 2019, losing a decision to current two-weight champion Amanda Nunes. “The Iron Lady” was on a five-fight winning streak before her recent loss, including wins against Aspen Ladd and Holly Holm.
