UFC 216: Pearl Gonzalez Returns This October

ufc 216

Strawweights Pearl Gonzalez and Poliana Botelho are set to square off this October at UFC 216.

The event takes place October 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Gonzalez is looking to bounce back from a submission loss to Cynthia Calvillo this past April. Prior to the fight, she was removed for a short time after the New York Athletic Commission found out she had undergone breast augmentation surgery.

Botelho was scheduled to fight in December and make her UFC debut, but the contest was scrapped when she was forced out.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal was the first to report the fight.
