“Bigfoot” will meet “The Hulk” this August at UFC 190, as Antonio Silva takes on Soa Palelei. Palelei confirmed the bout on Twitter late Friday night, though no official announcement has been made by the promotion.

Set for August 1 from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the card will feature Ronda Rousey defending her bantamweight title against Bethe Correia.

Silva (18-7) has not won since his 2013 knockout of Alistair Overeem, going 0-3 with a no-contest. In February he suffered his second straight knockout loss, falling to Frank Mir.

Palelei (22-4) is 3-1 since signing with the UFC, defeating Walt Harris in his most recent bout.

Below is the current lineup:

UFC Female Bantamweight Championship
Ronda Rousey (c) vs. Bethe Correia
