Julia Avila vs. Pannie Kianzad, bantamweight bout | This Saturday, UFC 239 Early Prelims | 6:15pm ET, LIVE on UFC FIGHT PASS

This Saturday’s UFC 239 event features an intriguing bantamweight contest on the early preliminary card when Julia Avila makes her promotional debut to take on Pannie Kianzad.

Avila (6-1) makes her UFC debut after picking up an impressive two-fight win streak with Invicta FC, knockout victories over Ashley Deen and Alexa Conners. The 31-year-old, also known as the ‘Raging Panda’, owns notable wins against Marion Reneau and Nicco Montano.

Kianzad (11-4) was last seen in the cage at the TUF 28 final in November, failing to earn a UFC contract after losing by way of a submission to Macy Chiasson. She has since rebounded with a unanimous decision win against Iony Razafiarison at the Superior Challenge 19 event this past May, resulting in a UFC contract.

UFC 239 takes place this Saturday July 6 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The early preliminary card featuring Avila vs. Kianzad will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass from 6:30pm EST.
