Two-division World Champion Amanda "The Lioness" Nunes is set to defend her UFC Bantamweight title against Julianna Pena at UFC 265. Pena called Nunes out after her victory against Olympic silver medalist Sara McMann at UFC 257. Considered by many as the greatest female fighter to walk the earth, Nunes currently rides a 12 fight win-streak with the recent one being against Megan Anderson at Featherweight.

Former UFC Bantamweight Champion Meisha Tate, on March 24, announced her comeback as she claimed, "the fire has been lit". Reportedly, Tate will face Marion Reneau at UFC Fight Night on July 17. However, the company is yet to make it official. Considered as one of the pioneers of women's participation in MMA, 32-year-old Tate retired from the sport in 2016. Meanwhile, Reneau has hinted at her retirement after the forthcoming bout.
