One of Canada’s top rising prospects, Jasmine Jasudavicius has her next UFC assignment.
At a UFC Fight Night event scheduled for June 18, Jasudavicius (7-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC) returns for her second promotional outing when she battles Brazilian debutant Natalia Silva (12-5-1 MMA, 0-0 UFC), pending bout finalization. The three-round bout takes place at 125 pounds.
A person with knowledge of the matchup recently informed MMA Junkie of the targeted booking but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. Combate was first to report the bout Tuesday.
Jasudavicius, 33, won her promotional debut in January when she defeated Kay Hansen via unanimous decision at UFC 270. The victory came after Jasudavicius earned a promotional contract on Dana White’s Contender Series.
Silva, 25, has been on the UFC roster since 2020 but has yet to fight. She was expected to fight Victoria Leonardo in January 2021, but after her withdrawal from the bout was not rebooked until now.
With the addition, the UFC Fight Night lineup for June 18 includes:
- Julian Marquez vs. Wellington Turman
- Phil Hawes vs. Deron Winn
- Kyle Daukaus vs. Roman Dolidze
- Gloria de Paula vs. Maria Oliveira
- JP Buys vs. Cody Durden
- Jasmine Jasudavicius vs. Natalia Silva
