Cynthia Calvillo will collide with former Invicta FC strawweight champion Livinha Souza at UFC Sacramento on July 13, multiple sources told MMA Fighting following a report by ESPN.

The UFC Fight Night is set to take place at the Golden1 Center in Sacramento, Calif., and air live on ESPN+.

Winner in five of six Octagon appearances, Calvillo (8-1) returns to action five months after defeating Cortney Casey via decision in Phoenix. Her winning streak also includes a first-round submission over Poliana Botelho in Argentina.

Souza (13-1) has won four in a row since losing the Invicta FC belt to Angela Hill in 2016, including a first-round finish over Alex Chambers in her UFC debut last September and a decision against eight-pound overweight Sarah Frota in February.
