Ramona Pascual will get another chance to secure her first UFC win. The Hong Kong native has been matched with promotional newcomer Tamires Vidal at an event on November 5th.
The event does not currently have a name or a location. But MMA Junkie confirmed that the matchup between the Brazilian and the Hong Konger was signed and sealed for this date.
The fight is set for bantamweight meaning that Pascual will have to get down to 135lbs for the first time since 2019. Her Brazilian opponent earned a UFC contract on the back of five straight wins.
Pascual (6-4) won four in a row to earn herself a UFC contract. The 33 year old relocated to Las Vegas in order to try and earn a contract with the world’s biggest MMA promotion.
The gamble paid off when she was offered a last minute matchup with Josiane Nunes at UFC Vegas 49. Pascual would also get a spot on the card at UFC Singapore but both bouts ended in decision defeats.
She will potentially be fighting for her UFC future on November 5th. Vidal (6-1) hasn’t lost a fight since 2016 and will be competing inside the octagon for the first time in her career.
