Cat Zingano vs Julianna Pena official for UFC 200 in July


Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is getting a lot of mileage from those graffiti posters.

The latest addition to an already stacked UFC 200 pay-per-view (PPV) fight card, which takes place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 9, 2016, is the women's bantamweight showdown pitting Cat Zingano against Julianna Pena.

UFC made the bout official on Thursday.

Zingano (9-1) hasn't been seen since her first-round submission loss to Ronda Rousey at UFC 184, which took place back in February of 2015. Prior to her "Rowdy" defeat, "Alpha" was unbeaten in nine trips to the cage and holds a technical knockout win over current champ Miesha Tate.

Pena (7-2) needed some time off following her legal troubles in Spokane, Washington, but was recently given the green light to return to action. The "Venezuelan Vixen" had a productive 2015 fight campaign, notching consecutive wins over Milana Dudieva and Jessica Eye.

UFC 200 will be headlined by the welterweight rematch between Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz, while featherweight contenders Frankie Edgar and Jose Aldo bang it out in the five-round interim championship co-main event.
