A second female fight has been added to UFC 212 in Rio de Janeiro.
Unbeaten as a mixed martial artist, Brazilian strawweight Viviane Pereira is set to take on Jamie Moyle in UFC’s return to Brazil on June 3, the promotion announced Saturday.
Pereira (12-0) successfully debuted in the Octagon in December, defeating Valerie Letourneau via split decision at UFC 206. Before signing with the promotion, “Sucuri” won 11 straight in Brazil, capturing belts as a strawweight and flyweight in the process.
Moyle (4-1) also holds a 1-0 record in the UFC after defeating Kailin Curran via unanimous decision last December. The 28-year-old fighter, who scored her previous three MMA victories under the Invicta FC banner, went 1-1 at the 23rd season of The Ultimate Fighter in 2016.
The UFC also officially announced a bantamweight clash between former WSOF champion Marlon Moraes and Raphael Assuncao, first reported by MMA Fighting.
UFC 212 will feature featherweight champion Jose Aldo opposite interim titleholder Max Holloway in the main event. Former middleweight champion Anderson Silva is expected to co-headline the event against a yet-to-be-determined opponent.
