TUF Winner Pena Returns in April

 
The ladies of the bantamweight division will be out in force in the first half of 2015, with two more compelling matchups added to a schedule that already includes Ronda Rousey's February title defense against Cat Zingano and this Saturday's showdown between top contenders Miesha Tate and Sara McMann.

On April 4 in Fairfax, Virginia, The Ultimate Fighter season 18 winner Julianna Pena will make her long-awaited return to the Octagon after an injury-induced layoff when she battles Milana Dudieva.

Russia's Dudieva is unbeaten in three straight, including an August 2014 victory over Elizabeth Phillips in her Octagon debut. Phillips' teammate Pena, who became the first woman to win TUF in 2013, will be looking for a little payback against Dudieva on April 4.

In a UFC 185 bout made official Tuesday, veteran kickboxer Germaine de Randamie will face off with the youngest fighter in the UFC, 20-year-old Brazilian Larissa Pacheco on March 14 in Dallas, Texas.
