A matchup of two Brazilian women’s strawweight fighters has been added to “The Ultimate Fighter 25” Finale card on July 7 at T-Mobile Arena.
UFC veteran Juliana Lima will welcome Amanda Ribas to the organization for her UFC debut.
Lima is 3-2 in five UFC fights and is coming off a win over JJ Aldrich in December.
The 35-year-old has only lost to Carla Esparza and Joanna Jedrzejczyk, the only two fighters to hold the 115-pound title, since she signed with the UFC in 2014.
Ribas, 23, will debut in the UFC after compiling a 6-1 record in seven pro fights contested exclusively in Brazil.
The season title bout for the current ‘TUF’ season will take place at the event, which will air on Fox Sports 1 and be headlined by a lightweight bout between Michael Johnson and former World Series of Fighting champ Justin Gaethje.
