The UFC will return to Rio de Janeiro on May 12, and the promotion has revealed the official poster for UFC 224.

The pay-per-view card will be headlined by a bantamweight title bout featuring champion Amanda Nunes and contender Raquel Pennington at Rio’s Jeunesse Arena in Brazil.

The card was expected to also feature an interim title bout between Rafael dos Anjos and Colby Covington, but the promotion has decided to move the match-up to UFC 225 in Chicago on June 9.

UFC 224 also includes a pair of middleweight bouts, Ronaldo Souza vs. Kelvin Gastelum and Vitor Belfort vs. Lyoto Machida, both pair featured in the official poster.
