Weeks after her release from the WSOF, Jessica Aguilar has signed to the UFC.

The current #2 strawweight on the planet will face the #3 fighter Claudia Gadelha in what could be a title eliminator at UFC 160 August 1 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Combate was the first to report the news and was later verified by MMAFighting.com.

Aguilar (19-4) has won 10 straight and defended her WSOF title twice. Having a notable win over the legend Megumi Fujii, she has only lost twice in her career.

Gadelha (12-1) is coming a close loss to current UFC champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk. She defeated current InvictaFC champion Herica Tiburcio and former JEWELS champion Ayaka Hamasaki during her career.

The fight will most likely air on the preliminary card on Fox Sports 1. UFC 190 will be headlined by champion Ronda Rousey defending her bantamweight title against Bethe Correia.

Jessica Aguilar will have a fight on her hands as she will takes on Brazil’s Kalindra Faria at World Series of Fighting 15 in Tampa, FL November 15. The match was announced Monday.

Considered the #1 ranked strawweight on the planet, Aguilar (18-4) dominated Emi Fujino in her last title match and continues her 8 fight win streak.

Faria (15-3-1) will be a tougher challenger to Aguilar’s title, having won 10 straight and has been undefeated at 115. She is the highest ranked competitor that isn’t signed to the UFC or Invicta. A win would give her the top spot in the rankings, putting her on several promotions radars.

The match will air on NBC Sports Net November 15.
