Uruguay’s first UFC show has its first poster.

On Wednesday, officials released the promotional material for the Aug. 10 event, which features UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko and the woman who will challenge her for that title, Liz Carmouche.

This will be Carmouche’s second shot at championship gold. Back on Feb. 23, 2013, Carmouche fought bantamweight titleholder Ronda Rousey in the main event of UFC 157 in what was the first women’s MMA fight in UFC history.

Shevchenko is seeking the second consecutive defense of her 125-pound title after defeating Jessica Eye by second-round KO at UFC 238 in June.

UFC Uruguay takes place at Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay. The main card will air on the ESPN+ streaming service.
