Cynthia Calvillo is wasting no time in the UFC.
The Team Alpha Male product will get a quick turnaround, facing Pearl Gonzalez in a strawweight bout on the UFC 210 main card April 8 in Buffalo, it was announced Saturday during the UFC Fight Night 107 broadcast.
Calvillo (4-0) is coming off a first-round submission win over Amanda Bobby Cooper earlier this month at UFC 209. The California native has finished all but one of her career victories. Calvillo, 29, will now have two straight appearances on UFC pay-per-view main cards.
Gonzalez (6-1) was recently signed by the UFC and is on a six-fight winning streak. The Chicago area native has not fought since a second-round submission win over Katie Klimansky-Casimir in April 2016. Gonzalez, 30, owns a win over UFC strawweight Cortney Casey.
UFC 210 is headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champion Daniel Cormier and challenger Anthony Johnson. In the co-main event, former middleweight champion Chris Weidman takes on Gegard Mousasi.
