Holly Holm will return to the bantamweight division for her next fight.

The former UFC 135-pound champion, who lost a decision against Germaine de Randamie for the inaugural featherweight gold at UFC 208, is targeted to meet Bethe Correia in the main event of UFC Fight Night 111 in Singapore on June 17, multiple sources told MMA Fighting.

Holm (10-3) will enter the five-round bout on a three-fight losing skid. After a perfect start in the sport, winning 10 straight with seven knockout finishes, including the historical win over Ronda Rousey, Holm lost to Miesha Tate, Valentina Shevchenko and de Randamie.

Correia (10-2-1), who once challenged Rousey for the UFC bantamweight gold, is coming off a majority draw with Marion Reneau in March. Prior to the fight, “Pitbull" bounced back from a pair of consecutive losses with a split decision victory over Jessica Eye.

UFC Fight Night 111 will take place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium, and will feature two other former UFC champions. In the heavyweight division, Andrei Arlovski meets Marcin Tybura, while Rafael dos Anjos makes his welterweight debut versus Tarec Saffiedine.
