Three Contender Series Brazil winners will compete at the upcoming UFC Sao Paulo event.

After a previously reported heavyweight clash between Augusto Sakai and Chase Sherman, the promotion has booked a female bouts featuring Mayra Bueno Silva and Gillian Robertson, and Marina Rodriguez versus Randa Markos.

Silva (5-0) was signed by the UFC after submitting Mayana Kellen with an anaconda choke in 62 seconds as a bantamweight, but will move back to flyweight. Rodriguez earned her contract with a first-round stoppage over Rizin veteran Maria Oliveira in a strawweight fight.

Robertson (5-2) enters the Octagon to face Rodriguez on a three-fight winning streak, capped off by a second-round submission win over Molly McCann. Markos (8-6) looks to rebound from a decision loss to Nina Ansaroff, which dropped her UFC record to 4-5.
