Attempting to earn her first UFC win, former Invicta FC champ Julija Stoliarenko will face Julia Avila at a June 26th event. News of the matchup was confirmed on social media by Stoliarenko earlier this week.
The fight joins a card that is set to happen at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
A fight between these two was first scheduled to compete in March, although their fight was cancelled after Stoliarenko collapsed at the weigh-ins.
Stoliarenko made her UFC debut last year, losing a decision bout to Yana Kunitskaya. The bout came months after she defeated Lisa Verzosa to win the Invicta FC Bantamweight Championship.
Avila took her first UFC loss in September, dropping a decision to Sijara Eubanks last year. She had previously scored two wins in the promotion, defeating Pannie Kianzad and Gina Mazany.
