Felicia Spencer will look to get back on track this fall.

Multiple people with knowledge of the promotion’s plans confirmed to MMA Fighting that Spencer will face Leah Letson in a featherweight bout at the UFC’s event on Nov. 13, which is expected to take place at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.

After submitting Megan Anderson in her octagon debut in May 2019, Spencer went on to face now Bellator champion Cris Cyborg and lost a unanimous decision at UFC 240 two months later. “Feenom” would go on to face Amanda Nunes for the 145-pound title two fights later at UFC 250 and dropped a five-round decision to the multi-division champion. In her most recent bout, Spencer was on the wrong end of a split decision against Norma Dumont at UFC Vegas 27 in May.

Letson will make her return to the octagon after nearly three years away due to various health issues. The former competitor on The Ultimate Fighter was victorious in her promotional debut at the TUF 28 Finale in November 2018 where she picked up a split decision win over Julija Stoliarenko.
