Bethe Correia will face Shayna Baszler at UFC 176

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Bethe Correia got her wish: a chance to improve to 2-0 against the 'Four Horsewomen.'

Correia is scheduled to face Shayna Baszler in a women's bantamweight match at UFC 176 on Aug. 2 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, according to UFC officials Monday.

Correia (8-0) is 2-0 in the UFC after defeating Jessamyne Duke at UFC 172. The Brazlian, who recently said she was going after Ronda Rousey's "little group", made a post-fight gesture after the Duke fight, implying that she knocked off one of the 'Four Horsewomen' and had three left.

Baszler (15-8) will make her long-awaited UFC debut at the autumn event. A contestant on TUF 18, Baszler lost to Julianna Pena in the first round of the reality show. She was also expected to face Sarah Kaufman at the TUF Nations Finale but had to drop out after suffering an injury.

Jose Aldo will defend his featherweight title against Chad Mendes once again in the night's main event.
