The June 13 show was originally scheduled to take place in Kazakhstan, but the UFC was forced to change plans due to the coronavirus pandemic. It’s still unclear how Gatto will secure her work visa to enter the United States with consulates closed in Brazil.
Born in Kazakhstan, Agapova (8-1) scored back-to-back first-round stoppages over Alexa Conners and Marilia Santos in less than a month in the Invicta FC cage last year, bouncing back from her first career loss at Dana White’s Contender Series, a decision defeat to future UFC prospect Tracy Cortez.
Agapova, 23, was expected to compete last time in February, but was removed from a fight with Daiana Torquato due to an auto-pedestrian accident in South Florida.
Gatto (6-0-2) signed with the UFC on a month’s notice to face Talita Bernardo in a bantamweight bout in May 2019, but withdrew with an injury. Gatto was then pulled from a fight with Julia Avila two months later after testing positive for furosemide in an out-of-competition test. Her one-year suspension ends June 5.
