Bethe Correia will square off against Pannie Kianzad at UFC 250 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Correia confirmed the bantamweight pairing on her social media account following an initial report from Ag Fight. UFC 250 takes place at Ibirapuera Gymnasium on May 9 and will reportedly feature a bantamweight championship tilt pitting Henry Cejudo against Jose Aldo.

Correia halted a three-bout winless stretch in her most recent outing, as she outpointed Sijara Eubanks at UFC Fight Night 159 on Sept. 21. The former title challenger is 5-4-1 during her promotional tenure and 11-4-1 as a professional overall.

Sweden’s Kianzad earned her first Octagon triumph at UFC Fight Night 163, where she captured a unanimous verdict against Jessica-Rose Clark on Nov. 9. The Invicta FC veteran lost to Macy Chiasson and Julia Avila in her first two promotional appearances.
