Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has added a fantastic female strawweight fight to its upcoming UFC Fight Night 67 mixed martial arts (MMA) event on FOX Sports 1, which is expected to take place inside the Goiania Arena in Goiania, Brazil, on Sat., May 30, 2015.

That's where Jessica Penne will battle Juliana Lima, according to Combat Press.

Penne (12-2) is a former Invicta FC atomweight champion and made her way to the ZUFFA fold as a contestant on The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 20. She came up short against eventual champion Carla Esparza, but rebounded in last December's live finale with a split-decision win over fellow contestant Randa Markos.

She'll have her hands full in Brazil.

Lima (7-2) dropped her Octagon debut to current strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk at UFC on FOX 12 last July; however, she was able to get right back into the win column by outpointing Invicta import Nina Ansaroff the following November.

Fun fight.

In addition to Penne vs. Lima, UFC Fight Night 67 will also feature the welterweight bangfest between Carlos Condit and Thiago Alves (more on that fight here).

Expect more news and notes on the Mat 30 fight card in the coming weeks.
