Claudia Gadelha will look to bounce back at this summer’s International Fight Week.
The UFC strawweight contender is expected to meet Randa Markos at UFC 239 on July 6 in Las Vegas, ESPN’s Brett Okamoto reported Tuesday night. Per the report, the bout has been verbally agreed to; contracts have not yet been signed.
Most recently, Gadelha fell to Nina Ansaroff by decision last December at UFC 231. The former title challenger is 1-2 in her last three bouts.
Markos is coming off a submission win last month over Angela Hill, which followed a draw against Marina Rodriguez last September. She has alternated wins and losses her entire UFC career, which dates back to 2014.
UFC 239, which takes place at T-Mobile Arena, will be headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between champion Jon Jones and Thiago Santos. Also on the card, UFC women’s featherweight and bantamweight champ Amanda Nunes meets Holly Holm at 135 pounds.
