December’s UFC Orlando continues to grow, with a women’s strawweight contest among the most recent additions to the Fight Night card.

That bout will see Yazmin Jauregui (9-0) face off with Istela Nunes (6-3, 1NC) at the event on December 3, 2022. MMA Fighting was first to report news of the booking, which Jauregui later confirmed on social media.

Mexico’s Jauregui is undefeated through her pro career to date, dating back to her debut in 2018. She had her octagon premiere last time out, picking up a unanimous decision win over Iasmin Lucindo this past August.

A former ONE Championship fighter, Brazilian Nunes has lost both of her UFC contests to date, and is in must-win territory here. The 30-year old holds a win over Japanese veteran Mei Yamaguchi, but fell short against current ONE atomweight champ Angela Lee when they faced off in 2017.

UFC Orlando is expected to feature the following match-ups:

  • Stephen Thompson vs. Kevin Holland
  • Tracy Cortez vs. Amanda Ribas
  • Matt Schnell vs. Matheus Nicolau
  • Eryk Anders vs. Kyle Daukaus
  • Derek Brunson vs. Jack Hermansson
  • Marcelo Rojo vs. Francis Marshall
  • Natan Levy vs. Genaro Valdez
  • Michael Johnson vs. Marc Diakiese
  • Angela Hill vs. Emily Ducote
  • Scott Holtzman vs. Clay Guida
  • Darren Elkins vs. Jonathan Pearce
  • Rafael dos Anjos vs. Bryan Barberena
