ufc fight night 45

The strawweights are coming – and ahead of The Ultimate Fighter 20 no less.

A report by FOXSports.com states that Claudia Gadelha and Tina Lahdemaki will meet in the first-ever female strawweight fight on July 16 at UFC Fight Night 45.

The card, set for Atlantic City, features a main event between Donald Cerrone and Jim Miller.

Gadelha (11-0) was brought in as a cast member for TUF 20, but issues making weight multiple times within a six-week period kept her from competing. She still signed a contract with the UFC and holds six submission victories to her credit.

Lahdemaki (5-0) has finished three opponents, including her last two via submission. She previously competed at flyweight.

Below is the list of fights announced to date for the card:

Lightweight: Donald Cerrone vs. Jim Miller

Bantamweight: Aljamain Sterling vs. Hugo Viana

Flyweight: John Lineker vs. Alptekin Ozkilic

Welterweight: Rick Story vs. John Howard

Lightweight: Pat Healy vs. Gleison Tibau

Lightweight: Edson Barboza vs. Evan Dunham

Featherweight: Lucas Martins vs. Jim Alers
