A bantamweight fight between Sijara Eubanks and Pannie Kianzad is currently in the works for the upcoming UFC event on Dec. 19 in Las Vegas.

Multiple sources close to the situation confirmed the bout to MMA Fighting on Wednesday following an initial report from MMA DNA.

The Dec. 19 event will serve as Eubanks’ fourth appearance in 2020 after earning a 2-1 record in her previous three fights. The former Ultimate Fighter finalist earned wins over Julia Avila and Sarah Moras before dropping a decision to Ketlen Vieira in a short-notice opportunity in September.

Meanwhile, Kianzad has earned back-to-back wins in her past two fights with unanimous decision victories against Bethe Correia and Jessica-Rose Clark.

Eubanks vs. Kianzad is the latest addition to a growing card on Dec. 19 with a welterweight fight between Leon Edwards and Khamzat Chimaev serving as the main event.
