Stevenson will take on Polyana Viana at UFC Belem on February 3 in Brazil, Guilherme Cruz of reports.
Stevenson enters this bout having won her previous five MMA bouts, but recently competed as a flyweight on the TUF season, and lost to Sijara Eubanks in her first fight. For her debut on the UFC stage, Stevenson will move down to 115 pounds, and holds a career record of 6-4 as a professional. On the other side, Viana is 9-1, and comes in with a five-fight win streak, including a victory over Amanda Ribas. She is a former Jungle Fight strawweight champion, and should present a formidable opponent for Stevenson.
