The UFC is booking fights into mid-May and a women’s flyweight bout between two contenders is the latest addition to the schedule.

Katlyn Chookagian and Viviane Araujo will square off May 15 at a yet-to-be-announced UFC event. The card does not currently have a location or venue.

A person with knowledge of the situation confirmed the booking to MMA Junkie after UFC broadcast partner ESPN reported the news Wednesday.

Chookagian (15-4 MMA, 8-4 UFC) has won two of her past three entering the fight, including her most recent victory, a unanimous decision win over Cynthia Calvillo at UFC 255 in November. Since she dropped down to flyweight in 2017, Chookagian has compiled a 6-3 divisional record.

Araujo (10-2 MMA, 4-1 UFC) rides a two-fight winning streak into the matchup. Following a December 2019 loss to Jessica Eye, Araujo won back-to-back unanimous decisions over Montana De La Rosa and Roxanne Modafferi.

With the addition, the May 15 lineup includes:

  • Priscila Cachoeira vs. Gina Mazany

  • Viviane Araujo vs. Katlyn Chookagian
