A fan favorite has been signed to the UFC.

Cindy Dandois, a longtime women’s MMA veteran, will meet Alexis Davis in a women’s bantamweight bout at UFC Fight Night 108 on April 22 in Nashville, the UFC announced Wednesday. It will be Dandois’ UFC debut after competing in a host of promotions in her career, including M-1 and Invicta FC.

Dandois (8-2) has won three in a row, including a victory over current Invicta interim featherweight champion Megan Anderson. The Belgium native defeated Anjela Pink by TKO in just 13 seconds at Conquest of the Cage 24 back in November. Dandois, 32, has only lost in her career to Invicta champ Tonya Evinger and Invicta top contender Yana Kunitskaya.

Davis (17-7) fell by second-round submission in her return from having her first child to Sara McMann in December. The Canada native is a former UFC No. 1 contender at women’s bantamweight, falling to Ronda Rousey in 2014. Davis, 32, owns wins over Evinger, Liz Carmouche and Sarah Kaufman.

UFC Fight Night 108 is headlined by a featherweight bout between Cub Swanson and Artem Lobov. No official co-main event has been named yet.
