Fresh from a UFC 172 win over Jessamyn Duke in April, Brazilian bantamweight prospect Bethe "Pitbull" Correia will target another member of the Four Horsewomen when she takes on veteran Shayna Baszler at UFC 177 on August 30.
The bout was originally scheduled to take place on the postponed UFC 176 event in Los Angeles,
Correia, 8-0 with two UFC victories, made no secret of her desire to defeat each member of the California fight team led by UFC women's bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, and now she'll get her chance at Sleep Train Arena in Sacramento against Baszler, a female fighting pioneer and Ultimate Fighter 18 cast member who will be making her Octagon debut in the summer showdown.
