By Tristen Critchfield Jan 9, 2019

Polyana Viana, who gained a measure of fame for beating up a man who was attempting to rob her in Rio de Janeiro, has her next Octagon assignment, as she will meet Hannah Cifers at UFC 235.

UFC President Dana White confirmed the strawweight bout to ESPN.com on Wednesday. UFC 235 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on March 2 and is headlined by a light heavyweight clash between Jon Jones and Anthony Smith.

Viana had a six-bout winning streak snapped in her last outing, as she suffered a unanimous decision loss against J.J. Aldrich at UFC 227. The 26-year-old Brazilian owns a 10-2 career mark and has finished all of her victories inside the distance.

Cifers made her promotional debut at UFC Fight Night 139, where she lost to Maycee Barber via second-round technical knockout. Prior to that, the Oxford, N.C., native had won five straight contests on the regional circuit.
