According to multiple Brazilian reports, Brazil will get its first women’s UFC bout. A bantamweight bout between Amanda Nunes and Sheila Gaff has been added to UFC 163. Nunes will be making her Octagon debut, and Gaff will be looking to rebound from her UFC debut loss to Sara McMann. There was no comment as to where the fight might take place on a card.
Globo was the first to report the bout. UFC 163: Aldo Vs Pettis takes place on August 3 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro. In the main event, Defending Featherweight Champion Jose Aldo Jr will take on Anthony Pettis in a five round title bout. Pettis, who is making his featherweight debut, will be looking to derail the 15 fight winning streak of Aldo. Seven of those wins have been UFC/WEC Featherweight title defenses.
