Leslie Smith announced her next fight on Twitter Wednesday night, confirming that she will meet Jessica Eye at UFC 180 in Mexico City.

Set for November 15, the event marks the debut for the promotion in Mexico. Cain Velasquez will meet Fabricio Werdum for the UFC heavyweight title in the main event.

Smith (7-5-1) picked up her first UFC win when she stopped Jessamyn Duke this past July. That snapped a two-fight losing streak for her that included a pair of decision losses to Sarah Kaufman and Barb Honchak.

Eye (10-2) is coming off a split decision loss to Alexis Davis that cost her a shot at the UFC title. Prior to that, her win over Kaufman was ruled a no-contest after failing the post-fight drug test.

Below is the current lineup:
