Germaine de Randamie vs. Julianna Pena targeted for UFC event on October 3rd

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.
