A women’s bantamweight bout between Germaine de Randamie and Ashlee Evans-Smith is headed to UFC Fight Night 93 in Hamburg, Germany, this September, with the UFC confirming the matchup on Friday.

De Randamie returned to the cage in May after a year out of action, and took out Anna Elmose with a first round TKO in front of a home country crowd in the Netherlands. That came after a TKO win over Larissa Pacheco in her previous outing in March of 2015. She’s won three of four overall inside the Octagon.

Evans-Smith got back to action herself in February after a failed drug test kept her out all of 2015. She picked up a split decision win over Marion Reneau in that return fight for her first UFC win.

UFC Fight Night 93 brings the organization to the city of Hamburg for the first time on Sept. 3, and it will be headlined by a heavyweight bout between Josh Barnett and Andrei Arlovski.
