UFC on FOX 11: Amanda Nunes vs Alexis Dufresne booked for April 19 in Orlando

With less than month to go before the promotion's return to FOX, UFC is adding the finishing touches to its "Werdum vs. Browne" fight card in "The Sunshine State."

There's a fiery women's bantamweight match-up in the works for UFC on FOX 11 as Amanda Nunes battles Alexis Dufresne inside the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, on April 19, 2014.

Nunes recently revealed the details on Instagram.

The Brazilian is perfect thus far in her Octagon career -- 9-3 overall -- and was last seen beating the brakes off Germaine de Randamie in front of the "Troops" last November. It was her second technical knockout win in a row, having also shellacked Sheila Gaff at UFC 163 last August.

Future title contender?

Not if Dufresne has anything to say about it. The American Top Team (ATT) product is undefeated through five fights and has yet to see a bout go past the first round. In fact, two of her wins -- including last month's destruction of Kim Couture -- were over in less than a minute.

Be afraid.

UFC on FOX 11 will feature a heavyweight No. 1 contender bout as Fabricio Werdum battles a red-hot Travis Browne in the main event. In addition, Miesha Tate takes on Liz Carmouche in women's bantamweight action, while Donald Cerrone throws leather against fellow lightweight Edson Barboza.
