Felicia Spencer is back in action.

The 29-year-old featherweight is set to face Zarah Fairn dos Santos in a featherweight bout at UFC Norfolk on Feb. 29. MMA Fighting confirmed the matchup with sources following an initial report from BJPenn.com.

Spencer is competing for the first time since dropping a unanimous decision to Cris Cyborg at UFC 240 in July. It was the first loss of the Canadian’s career following a 7-0 start that included winning a vacant Invicta FC featherweight title last year. In her UFC debut this past May, Spencer defeated Megan Anderson by first-round submission.

Dos Santos (6-3) will be seeking her first UFC win. In her Octagon debut, the 33-year-old Brazilian was submitted by Anderson at UFC 243 in October.

UFC Norfolk takes place at Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Va. The main card will air live on the ESPN+ streaming service.
