Poliana Botelho vs. Syuri Kondo targeted for UFC Fight Night event on May 19

A women’s strawweight fight between Poliana Botelho and Syuri Kondo is being targeted for the UFC Fight Night event on May 19, the news was first confirmed by Brazil’s Combate.

Brazil’s Botelho will be making her second appearance for the UFC.

Botelho (6-1) made a successful promotional debut last November, earning herself a unanimous decision over Pearl Gonzalez. The 29-year-old Brazilian trains at the Team Nova Uniao along with a number of high-profile fellow-UFC stars and is currently on a four-fight win streak, including three knockouts.

Kondo (6-0) will also be making her second UFC appearance, following a split decision win over Chanmi Jeon in her debut last September. The 29-year-old from Japan has yet to be defeated in her professional career with all her victories coming by way of decisions, bar a 2016 first-round knockout over Sharma Devaiah.

UFC Fight Night takes place on May 19 from the Movistar Arena in Santiago, Chile. The event will be aired live on Fox Sports 1.
