UFC women’s bantamweight champion Miesha Tate will be making her first title defense at UFC 200 on July 9 as she will be challenged by Amanda Nunes.
The fight booking was announced by the UFC on Wednesday evening.
UFC 200 will come from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada and will be headlined by a welterweight bout rematch as Nate Diaz faces current UFC featherweight champion Conor McGregor.
Tate (18-5) won the UFC title last month as she defeated Holly Holm by submission in the fifth round. It was her fifth straight win and it was her first submission victory since 2012. Nunes (12-4) is currently on a three fight winning streak and is coming off a win against Valentina Shevchenko at UFC 196. She has won five of her six fights in the UFC and four of those wins have come by stoppage.
