Gadelha and Kowalkiewicz to meet in Brazil this June

Top strawweight contenders will collide on Jun. 3 as No. 1-ranked Claudia Gadelha faces No. 2-ranked Karolina Kowalkiewicz in a UFC 212 bout in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

UFC 212, which is headlined by the UFC featherweight championship bout between Jose Aldo and Max Holloway, airs live on Pay-Per-View.

Both former title challengers who pushed champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk to the limit in 2016, Gadelha and Kowalkiewicz will attempt to make their case to face the winner of the May bout between Jedrzejczyk and Jessica Andrade. Winner of three UFC bouts thus far, Gadelha's last two victories have come in her home country of Brazil, where she defeated Jessica Aguilar and Corntney Casey. In June, she'll attempt to keep her perfect home record intact against Poland's Kowalkiewicz, a victor over Randa Markos, Heather Jo Clark and Rose Namajunas who will be making her first start since her hard-fought title fight at UFC 205 in November.
