Germaine de Randamie will make her Octagon return when the UFC honors its history this coming November.
De Randamie, a former featherweight champion who was stripped of her title, will meet Raquel Pennington in a bantamweight bout at UFC Fight Night 139. The card marks 25 years since the promotion debuted in Denver.
After besting Holly Holm for the inaugural title in 2017, de Randamie declared she wouldn’t face Cris Cyborg and was stripped by UFC officials. She is on a three-fight win streak dating back to a 2013 loss to current UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes.
Pennington had her four-fight win streak snapped in May by Nunes, suffering a fifth-round TKO loss.
Below is the current fight card:
Featherweight: Frankie Edgar vs. Chan Sung Jung
Welterweight: Donald Cerrone vs. Mike Perry
Flyweight: Joseph Benavidez vs. Ray Borg
Strawweight: Maycee Barber vs. Maia Stevenson
Female Bantamweight: Raquel Pennington vs. Germaine de Randamie
Strawweight: Ashley Yoder vs. Amanda Cooper
