Anne Ribeiro will enter a mixed martial arts cage for a second time on June 23, taking on Nicole Fisher in a 135-pound amateur bout at XFN 24 in Florida, the promotion announced.

Ribeiro, the daughter of former UFC heavyweight title contender Antonio Silva, made her amateur MMA debut in March, losing a close split decision to Hannah Jackson at XFN 23. At the time, “Bigfoot” called it a “bullsh*t decision”.

According to Tapology, Fisher will be making her amateur MMA debut.

“Very excited to be back, this is going to be a fun one,” Ribeiro posted on her social media. “I’m hungry for that W. Don’t miss it!”
