Tatiana Suarez will face an undefeated Brazilian next time she steps inside the Octagon.
Suarez (4-0) competed on the 23rd season of The Ultimate Fighter in 2016, going 3-0 in the reality show before defeating Amanda Cooper in the tournament final in July 2016. Suarez returns for the first time since pulling out of a fight with Juliana Lima last December due to an injury.
