A women’s strawweight scrap has been added to June’s UFC 275, expected to take place in Singapore.

ESPN Deportes was first to report that Silvana Gomez Juarez (10-4) will face China’s Na Liang (15-5) at the event. Both fighters subsequently confirmed the booking on social media.

Juarez, 37, has lost her first two outings inside the octagon, and will be entering must-win territory this July. In her promotional debut, she came up short against Loopy Godinez; that was followed by a second loss, to Vanessa Demopoulos.

Both defeats saw Juarez tap to an arm-bar. Prior to entering the UFC, the Argentinian fighter had won three straight bouts.

Na Liang will enter the bout off a wild debut fight against Ariane Carnelossi. Liang had her moments in the fight, coming close to victory before being put away in the second round. The 25-year old had won five straight, all under the WLF banner, prior to entering the UFC.

UFC 275 is expected to take place in Singapore on June 11, 2022. Two title fights top the card, which currently breaks down as follows:

Glover Teixeira (c) vs. Jiri Prochazka – for the UFC light heavyweight championship
Valentina Shevchenko (c) vs. Taila Santos – for the UFC women’s flyweight championship
Robert Whittaker vs. Marvin Vettori
Silvana Gomez Juarez vs. Na Liang
