The UFC has added another bout to its upcoming UFC Fight Night 67 show in Brazil.

Ranked No. 3 in the women’s strawweight division, Jessica Penne is scheduled to meet Juliana Lima at the Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil, on May 30. Lima announced the match-up on her Instagram after a report from Combat Press.

Penne (12-2) defeated Randa Markos via split decision in her Octagon debut in December after going 2-1 on season 20 of The Ultimate Fighter. During the reality show, Penne beat Lisa Ellis and Aisling Daly before losing to season winner and first ever UFC champion Carla Esparza.

Lima (7-2) looks for her second straight victory in the UFC after scoring a unanimous decision over Nina Ansaroff in November. In her promotional debut, the Brazilian lost a decision to strawweight contender Joanna Jędrzejczyk.

UFC Fight Night 67 takes place May 30 in Goiania, Brazil, and also features a welterweight clash between Carlos Condit and Thiago Alves.
