Valentina Shevchenko will put her flyweight championship on the line in a rematch against Liz Carmouche in the main event of UFC Uruguay on August 10.

Shevchenko (17-3) is currently riding a three-fight win streak, most recently defeating Jessica Eye with a vicious second-round knockout at UFC 238 earlier this month. “Bullet” holds Octagon victories over Eye, Sarah Kaufman, Julianna Pena, Priscila Cachoeira, and former UFC champions Holly Holm and Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

Carmouche (13-6) defeated Shevchenko via second-round TKO in their initial meeting back in 2010. “Girl-Rilla” is coming off of back-to-back wins over Jennifer Maia and Lucie Pudilova, most recently beating Pudilova by unanimous decision in February.

The event will take place at the Antel Arena in Montevideo, Uruguay.
