The UFC have announced that Brazilian duo Jennifer Maia and Viviane Araujo will face one another on their Austin card in June.

Maia, 31, is currently No. 4 in the UFC women's flyweight rankings and became flyweight champion of Invicta FC in 2018.

She will enter the bout off the back of a loss via unanimous decision against Katlyn Chookagian in November last year.

Araujo, 33, has won eight of her ten MMA bouts and is currently ranked No 7.

She was also the former Pancrase strawweight champion in 2018.

UFC Austin will be held on June 27 in Texas, but the rest of the card is yet to be announced.
