Tatiana Suarez to return against Viviana Pereira at UFC Fight Night 120
TUF winner Tatiana Suarez will return to action against Viviane Pereira. The strawweight bout has been added to UFC Fight Night 120, which takes place Nov. 11 at the Ted Constant Convocation Center in Norfolk, Va.
Suarez has been out of action since winning the 23rd season of “The Ultimate Fighter.” In the finals, she scored a first-round submission victory over Amanda Cooper. Suarez had been scheduled to return against Juliana Lima at UFC Fight Night 102, but she dropped out of the bout with an injury. On the show, the Millennia MMA representative scored victories over Chelsea Bailey, JJ Aldrich and Kate Jackson.
Pereira joined the UFC with an undefeated record last winter. In her promotional debut, she defeated former UFC title challenger Valerie Letourneau via split decision. Pereira then returned at UFC 212 and took another decision over Jamie Moyle. The victories pushed her record to 13-0.
In the main event of UFC Fight Night 120, former UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis returns to action against Dustin Poirier.
