Back in action for the first time since winning season 23 of The Ultimate Fighter in 2016, Tatiana Suarez will battle Brazil's Viviane Pereira in a UFC Fight Night bout in Norfolk, Virginia on Nov. 11.
The event will air live on FS1 from the Ted Constant Convocation Center.
A cancer diagnosis may have derailed Suarez’ dream of an Olympic Gold medal in wrestling, but once she won that fight, she set her sights on mixed martial arts and has since won five fights and the TUF 23 crown. This fall, she begins the next chapter of her career against fellow strawweight prospect Pereira, who is perfect in 13 bouts, including UFC wins over Valerie Letourneau and Jamie Moyle.
