Viana (10-2) had a six-fight win streak snapped in August at UFC 227 when JJ Aldrich outworked her for three rounds to hand Viana a unanimous decision loss, the 27-year-old Brazilian’s first in the UFC. She debuted in the Octagon with a first-round submission of Maia Stevenson last February and has finished all of her pro victories. Viana also made headlines recently for dispatching a mugger.
The 26-year-old Cifers made her UFC debut in November, stepping in on less than a month’s notice for an injured Stevenson to fight Maycee Barber. That bout ended in a second-round TKO loss for Cifers (8-3), who had previously won five straight fights competing primarily in the southeastern United States.
