UFC officials have confirmed another bout for the upcoming UFC 176 event that’s set to take place on August 2 at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Brazilian Bethe Correia has agreed to take on another member of the ‘Four Horsewomen’ in Shayna Baszler.

The UFC 176 event will be headlined by the UFC featherweight championship rematch between champion Jose Aldo and challenger Chad Mendes.

Correia (8-0) is coming off a unanimous decision win over Baszler’s teammate and fellow ‘Four Horsewomen’ Jessamyn Duke at UFC 172. It was her second win in the UFC following a unanimous decision win in her debut against MMA veteran Julie Kedzie. Correia put up four fingers then made the motion of taking away a finger to signify that she took down one of the ‘Four Horsewomen’ after beating Duke. Baszler didn’t take too kindly to the gesture and now it’s time for them to set it up in the Octagon.

Baszler (15-8) is coming off a disappointing performance on the last season of “The Ultimate Fighter”. She has yet to officially fight in the UFC, losing her last official bout in the Invicta FC promotion against Alexis Davis.
