Top ten female bantamweights Sara McMann and Amanda Nunes will face off at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on August 8, adding another stellar matchup to the UFC Fight Night card headlined by the light heavyweight bout between Ovince Saint Preux and Glover Teixeira.
FOX Sports 1 will televise the event.
An Olympic Silver medalist in freestyle wrestling, former world title challenger McMann will look to improve on her number four ranking this summer against the number eight-ranked Nunes, a hard-charging battler who has won three of her last four.
