Featherweight contender Arlene Blencowe will look to get back on the winning track when she fights Amber Leibrock this fall.

Officials confirmed with MMA Fighting that a bout between Blencowe and prospect Amber Leibrock has been scheduled for Bellator 206, which will take place on Sept. 29 at the SAP Center in San Jose, Calif.

The matchup was first reported by the Geelong Advertiser.

Blencowe (10-7) lost a five-round split decision to featherweight champion Julia Budd at Bellator 189 last December, the second time the two had fought. Their first meeting back in October 2016 also went to the scorecards, with Budd winning that meeting by majority decision.

A native of Australia, the 35-year-old Blencowe has a 3-3 record in two stints with Bellator.

In four pro bouts, Leibrock has put together a 3-1 record competing for the Bellator and Invicta FC promotions. Leibrock, 30, is currently on a two-fight win streak having most recently beaten Janay Harding via unanimous decision in her Bellator debut in May.

Bellator 206 will be headlined by welterweight champion Rory MacDonald challenging Gegard Mousasi for the middleweight title, as well as a heavyweight grudge match between Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Wanderlei Silva, and an opening round Bellator Welterweight World Grand Prix between former champions Douglas Lima and Andrey Koreshkov.
