Felicia Spencer will welcome Danyelle Wolf to the UFC.

Spencer (8-2 MMA, 2-2 UFC) meets Wolf (1-0 MMA, 0-0 UFC) on May 22 at UFC Fight Night, which does not yet have an official venue or location.

A person with knowledge of the matchup confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie on Tuesday but asked to remain anonymous as the promotion has yet to make an official announcement. BJPenn.com was first to report the news.

Spencer, a former Invicta FC featherweight champion, fell short in her pursuit of UFC gold when she lost a unanimous decision to two-division champion Amanda Nunes last June. The Canadian has split her four octagon appearances, picking up finishes over Megan Anderson and Zarah Fairn Dos Santos.
