Demopoulos (8-4) quickly became one of the UFC’s breakout prospects as she jumped into the viral celebration of Joe Rogan and Michael Bisping following her 2022 winning streak. Former LFA strawweight champion, “Lil Monster,” who made her flyweight debut in 2021 against JJ Aldrich, returned to her natural weight class this year, beating Silvana Gomez Juarez and former Invicta atomweight champion Jinh Yu Frey.
Oliveira (13-5) started her career in her native Brazil and posted a 9-2 record before being asked to make back-to-back appearances at RIZIN. In 2018, she had a breakthrough opportunity in Dana White’s Contender Collection But against current strawweight champion hopeful Marina Rodriguez. After bouncing back with two victories outside the UFC, she got a call to fight in the Octagon and went 1-1 in the qualifying bout. Her most recent match was against Gloria De Paula in June.
At this time, no location, location or headlines for the event have been announced.
