#1 Germaine de Randamie will take on #4 Julianna Pena in a women’s bantamweight bout on the main card of UFC Fight Island 4, an event that will be live this Saturday in Abu Dhabi and available on ESPN+.

The winner of this fight could very well end up with a shot at a title fight with Amanda Nunes. De Randamie just came off a loss to Nunes in which the bout went all five rounds. This one will go just three at the max.

De Randamie has an impressive resume with wins over #5 Requel Pennington and #3 Aspen Ladd. She throws 2.72 strikes per minute and takes 2.15, connecting on 47 percent and deflecting 64 percent.

The 36-year-old will have her hands full with Julianna Pena who is a bit more versatile. Landing 2.96 strikes and taking 1.51 per minute, Pena is also a talented grappler, averaging 2.6 takedowns per 15 minutes.

Given her inexperience compared to de Randamie, she’ll come in as a slight underdog with a chance to leave her mark on the women’s bantamweight class.
