Two UFC flyweights looking to get back on the winning track will meet in the Czech Republic.

On Tuesday, officials announced a bout between Veronica Macedo (5-2-1) and Gillian Robertson (5-3) for UFC Prague on Feb. 23. The matchup was first reported by FloCombat.

Macedo is coming off of a unanimous decision loss to Andrea Lee last May. The 23-year-old Venezuelan was then supposed to fight Maryna Moroz at UFC Argentina in November, but withdrew due to injury. She is winless in two UFC appearances so far.

A cast member on season 26 of The Ultimate Fighter, Robertson, also 23, began her UFC career with back-to-back submission wins over Molly McCann and Emily Whitmire. She lost by submission to Mayra Bueno Silva in her most recent outing this past September.

UFC Fight Night 145 will be headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Jan Blachowicz and Thiago Santos, with the main card streaming live on ESPN+.
