Ketlen Viera appears able to try getting back to her winning ways.
A fight between the previously undefeated Viera and veteran Marion Reneau is targeted for UFC 250. an individual with knowledge of things informed MMA Junkie of the approaching booking on Tuesday but asked to stay anonymous since the UFC has yet to form an announcement.
UFC 250 is scheduled for May 9 at Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo , Brazil, and can stream on ESPN+ pay-per-view following prelims likely on ESPN and ESPN+/UFC Fight Pass.
Viera (10-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC), No. 7 within the latest USA TODAY Sports/MMA Junkie women’s bantamweight rankings, had been mentioned as a possible title contender at 135 pounds until suffering the primary loss of her professional career. Last month at UFC 245, the 28-year-old Brazilian was knocked out by Irene Aldana within the first round to snap her 10-fight streak , including four UFC victories.
Reneau, 42, also will look to urge back within the win column. She’s lost her last two fights by unanimous decision to Yana Kunitskaya and Cat Zingano. Last September, Reneau (9-5-1 MMA, 4-4-1 UFC) was scheduled to fight Aldana but withdrew for undisclosed reasons.
