Rosi Sexton will take on Jessica Andrade in Sexton’s hometown.

The bantamweight fighters will go head-to-head at UFC Fight Night 30: Bisping vs. Munoz at Phones 4U Arena in Manchester, England on Oct 26.

Sexton tweeted about the event today.

“It’s official,” she tweeted. “First women’s UFC fight in UK – me vs @JessicaMMApro; & first time in my career fighting in my home town!”

UFC officials later confirmed the match-up.

Sexton (13-3) and Andrade (9-3) are both looking for their first win in the UFC. They both lost in their UFC debuts. Sexton was on a three-fight-win streak before she lost to Alexis Davis via unanimous decision at UFC 161: Evans vs. Henderson.

Andrade was on a two-fight-win streak before she lost in her UFC debut. She lost to Liz Carmouche via technical knockout in the second round at UFC on FOX 8: Johnson vs. Moraga.
