The Miesha Tate return tour continues as the former UFC bantamweight champion is set to take on Mayra Bueno Silva at a UFC event on June 3.

Dama de Ferro MMA was the first to break the news.

After a one-fight stint at 125 pounds Tate (19-9) will go back up to the division where she made her name as champion.

Her one fight at flyweight was against Lauren Murphy last July where she dropped a decision. Prior to that fight she lost a decision to Ketlen Vieira in Nov. 2021, but that followed a TKO victory over Marion Reneau in July of the same year.

Bueno Silva (10-2) is coming off a submission victory at the UFC APEX in Feb. where she finished Lina Lansberg and then made her case on the microphone for a top contender fight, or a title shot.

Oh and she made a fun little pitch to Monster Energy for a sponsorship.

Bueno Silva is on a 3-fight win streak and is currently ranked #10 just above Miesha Tate’s #11 ranking. A victory over a former champion would be a nice feather in the cap, and depending on how it ends, make a statement for her case in the title shot conversation.

No location or venue has been announced by the UFC as of this posting.
