Karol Rosa is not wasting any time.
A teammate of Jessica Andrade at PRVT in Niteroi, Rosa will return to the Octagon less than two months after her victorious UFC debut, taking on Julia Avila in a bantamweight bout at the UFC Singapore card on Oct. 26, the company announced Tuesday.
Rosa (12-3) already fought three times in 2019, scoring a pair of finishes in her native Brazil before defeating Lara Procopio via split decision at UFC Shenzhen on Aug. 31. The 24-year-old bantamweight has finished six of her 12 MMA wins with four knockouts and two submissions.
Avila (7-1) also won a decision victory in her first appearance under the UFC banner, defeating Pannie Kianzad at UFC 239 in July. “Raging Panda” is riding a three-fight winning streak that includes a second-round TKO over Alexa Conners at Invicta FC 32.
