Two Brazilians are set to collide in the octagon of UFC’s upcoming Fight Night event. In April 22 Karol Rosa will move up to 145 lbs to take on Norma Dumont. Multiple people familiar with the matter told MMA Fighting that this was after a report by Ag. Fight.
The UFC is yet to reveal the exact location of the event and its headline attraction.
Rosa (16-4), MMA Fighting’s No. 9 was the highest ranked bantamweight fighter in the world. Lina Lansberg defeated Lina Lansberg by majority decision in October to recover from Sara McMann’s first loss in UFC.
A teammate of Jessica Andrade’s at PRVT, Rosa has won five of her six UFC appearances, including victories over Bethe Correia and Joselyne Edwards.
Dumont (8-2) is one of the few athletes to consistently compete at featherweight despite voicing her intent to return to bantamweight. In her most recent UFC bout, “The Immortal” spoiled Danyelle Wolf’s UFC debut to improve to 4-2 under the company banner.
