"An important women's bantamweight fight has been added to UFC 161.

Alexis Davis will meet Rosi Sexton on June 15 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, the promotion announced Thursday. The bout will mark both fighters' Octagon debut and will be, as of now, the fourth women's fight in UFC history.

Davis (13-5), who originally hails from Ontario, Canada but now trains with team Cesar Gracie jiu-jitsu in Northern California, is considered one of the top bantamweight fighters in the world. After going 2-1 in Strikeforce, Davis won her last two fights in a row in Invicta FC. She holds notable wins over Shayna Baszler, Julie Kedzie and Amanda Nunes.

Sexton (10-2), who currently fights out of England and has a mathematics degree from Cambridge University and a PhD in theoretical computer science from Manchester University and currently also works as an osteopath, has won her last three fights in a row. Her only two loses came against Gina Carano in 2006 and Zoila Frausto Gurgel at Bellator 23 in 2010. Her biggest wins came against Aisling Daly, Roxanne Modaferri and Debi Purcell.

The 135-pound fight will air on the pay-per-view portion of the card, according to the UFC.

Next weekend's Miesha Tate vs. Cat Zingano fight will mark the second women's fight in UFC history following the historic Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche bout in February. The third fight will take place later this month when Sara McMann meets Sheila Gaff at UFC 159 on April 27.

UFC 161, headlined by Renan Barao vs. Eddie Wineland for the UFC interim men's bantamweight title, will take place at the MTS Centre in Winnipeg. Tickets for the event go on sale April 12."
