UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey is set to make the next defence of her title on August 1st at UFC 190: “Rousey vs Correia” in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rousey meets outspoken and undefeated Brazilian contender Bethe “Pitbull” Correia in the night’s main event.

UFC officials formally announced the title fight on Friday following reports from Tatame and Globo. Rousey most recently submitted “Alpha” Cat Zingano in 14 seconds at UFC 184. Correia is 2-0 against Rousey’s “Four Horsewomen” stable, with wins over Jessamyn Duke and Shayna Baszler.

Rousey (11-0-0) enters the August title tilt as a massive favourite among oddsmakers, and the Olympic bronze medallist will have added motivation as she looks to avenge her fellow Horsewomen’s recent defeats. Now 5-0 inside the Octagon, Rousey has finished all but one of her UFC opponents inside the first round, with only rival Miesha “Cupcake” Tate surviving until round three. Her two most recent bouts, against Alexis “Ally-Gator” Davis and Zingano, lasted a combined time of just 30 seconds, and Rousey is regarded by some as the biggest star on the UFC’s roster today.

Correia (9-0-0) began her UFC career with a close decision win over veteran Julie “Fireball” Kedzie in late 2013, but it was her 2014 campaign that made fans take note of Correia’s talents. After defeating Duke in April, Correia set her sights on the rest of the “Four Horsewomen” faction, and she handily dispatched of Baszler at UFC 177 in August. Since then, Correia has made no secret of her desire to challenge the leader of the Horsewomen, Rousey, and she will look to score a major upset when she gets her championship shot in front of a partisan crowd in Brazil.

The Rousey-Correia victor is expected to move on to face the winner of a targeted June contender’s bout between the aforementioned Miesha Tate (16-5-0) and Jessica “Evil” Eye (11-2-0, 1 ND). An exact date, location and event for the Tate-Eye title eliminator has not yet been officially announced, but UFC President Dana White stated on Friday that the fight will take place sometime in June.

TUF 20 semi-finalist Jessica Penne looks for her second victory inside the Octagon when she returns to action at UFC Fight Night 67 on May 30th in Goiânia, Goiás, Brazil. The former Invicta FC champion is expected to face off against veteran Brazilian contender Juliana “Ju Thai” de Lima Carneiro.

Combat Press first reported on the targeted matchup today. Penne won her UFC debut in December when she edged out fellow TUF 20 semi-finalist Randa “Quiet Storm” Markos. Lima bounced back from a loss in her first UFC bout by defeating Nina “The Strina” Ansaroff at UFC Fight Night 56.
