The UFC Singapore card is slowly coming together and already has plenty of big names.

The UFC recently announced the main event bout of the card set for Singapore Indoor Stadium on June 17. It will be in the women’s bantamweight division, as former champ Holly Holm of the USA takes on former title challenger Bethe Correia of Brazil.

Holm will be looking to end a three-fight skid as she comes off a close decision loss to Netherlands’ Germaine De Randamie for the promotion’s inaugural women’s featherweight title. Correia, meanwhile, has gone 1-1-1 since losing to Ronda Rousey in 2015. The Brazilian is coming off a draw against Marion Reneau in March.
