Virna Jandiroba-Amanda Lemos Strawweight Bout Added to July 20 UFC Event

UFC
May 15, 2024
A pivotal strawweight clash pitting Virna Jandiroba against Amanda Lemos has been booked for the UFC’s July 20 card.

Jandiroba confirmed the pairing on social media following an initial report from MMA Melotto. UFC Fight Night is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas and also includes a women’s flyweight showdown between Tracy Cortez and Miranda Maverick and a middleweight scrap between Brad Tavares and Jung Yong Park. A headliner has not been confirmed for the event.

A former Invicta FC champion, Jandiroba has been victorious in her last three Octagon appearances. Most recently, the 35-year-old Brazilian outpointed Lupita Godinez at UFC on ESPN 54 on March 30. She has also earned decision wins over Marina Rodriguez and Angela Hill during her current winning streak.

After coming up short in a 115-pound title bid against Weili Zhang at UFC 292 last August, Lemos returned to the win column in her last outing, as she took a unanimous verdict against Mackenzie Dern at UFC 298. The 36-year-old Brazilian is 8-3 during her promotional tenure, with other notable wins against the likes of Rodriguez, Michelle Waterson-Gomez and Hill.
