Another women's bantamweight fight has been added to UFC 200.

One day after the announcement of the Miesha Tate-Amanda Nunes title fight, Cat Zingano vs. Julianna Pena became official. ESPNW initially reported the bout on Thursday.

A fan favorite for her toughness and go-for-broke style, Zingano (9-1) will make her first Octagon appearance since losing to then-champion Ronda Rousey in the main event of UFC 184 on Feb. 28, 2015. Eight of the Coloradan's nine victories have come by way of finish.

Pena (8-2), meanwhile, was the first woman ever to win an Ultimate Fighter championship, claiming the women's bantamweight tourney in TUF 18. She's officially 3-0 in the UFC and has four first-round wins among her seven career finishes. Her most recent fight was a decision over Jessica Eye at UFC 192.

A Spokane, Wash. native, Pena recently received a continuance in an alleged assault case which will end up in the dropping of misdemeanor charges if there are no further incidents.
