According to multiple reports, a pair of new bouts are set for UFC 190, as Claudia Gadelha welcomes Jessica Aguilar and Clint Hester faces Vitor Miranda.

Set for August 1 from Brazil, the card features Ronda Rousey defending her female bantamweight belt vs. Bethe Correia.

Gadelha (12-1) suffered her first pro defeat when she was bested by current UFC champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk via split decision. Jedrzejczyk went on to finish Carla Esparza and become the titleholder

In Aguilar, the Brazilian will be facing a former World Series of Fighting champion who many have long-considered the top 115-pound female in the world.

Hester (11-4) won four in a row before a loss to Robert Whittaker, while Miranda (10-4) is a former finalist on The Ultimate Fighter: Brazil 3 in the heavyweight division.
