A strawweight tilt between Amanda Ribas and Angela Hill is in the works for UFC on ESPN 24.

MMAFighting.com was first to report the bout. UFC on ESPN 24 takes place on May 8 at an undisclosed location and is headlined by a bantamweight duel between Cory Sandhagen and T.J. Dillashaw. Both Ribas and Hill have verbally agreed to the fight.

Ribas had a five-bout winning streak snapped at UFC 257, where she suffered a second-round technical knockout loss to Marina Rodriguez on Jan. 23. The 27-year-old Brazilian began her promotional tenure with triumphs over Emily Whitmire, Mackenzie Dern, Randa Markos and Paige VanZant.

Hill, meanwhile, has been victorious in four of her last six Octagon appearances, with her two defeats during that period coming via contentious split decision against Michelle Waterson and Claudia Gadelha. Most recently, the former Invicta FC title holder rebounded from those backt-to-back losses with a decision win against Ashley Yoder at UFC Fight Night 187.
