The UFC’s first trip to Greenville, South Carolina will feature a pair of top-15 women’s flyweights.

FloCombat reported on Monday that Andrea Lee is expected to fight Montana De La Rosa on the June 22nd card. The UFC has not yet made the bout official.

Lee (10-2) is a former Legacy FC champion who’s impressed in both of her UFC appearances. “KGB” debuted successfully by besting Veronica Macedo, then in February she outclassed Ashlee Evans-Smith to extend her winning streak to six. The 30-year-old is currently #12 in the UFC’s official rankings.

De La Rosa (10-4) is looking for her fifth straight win, as The Ultimate Fighter 26 alum has submitted all of her previous four opponents. She earned Performance of the Night honors at UFC 234 when she easily submitted Nadia Kassem. Her other two UFC wins came against Rachael Ostovich and Christina Marks. Montana is ranked right behind Lee at #13.

UFC Greenville will stream live exclusively on ESPN+. No main event has been named as of yet.
