UFC Fight Night 67 continues to build up nicely with a recently announced clash of strawweights, as Juliana Lima and Jessica Penne are added to the show that will take place in Goiânia on May 23rd as it was reported by Tatame

With the support of the home crowd, Lima will try to earn her second win in the UFC after a unanimous decision victory against Nina Ansaroff in November. Before that, the Brazilian lost her debut to the division’s current champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Penne, a semifinalist on TUF 20, started her UFC career with a split decision win against fellow semifinalist, Randa Markos. Now, much like Lima, the former Invicta FC atomweight champion will look to get her hand raised a second time in the octagon.

It’s not yet settled if the bout will be a part of the main card, which will be headlined by Carlos Condit and Thiago Alves, or the prelims.
