At the UFC on FOX 28 event last Sunday, the UFC announced that it is visiting the South American country of Chile for the first time on May 19.

Five bouts were also announced for the Movistar Arena in the city of Santiago, although a headliner has not been confirmed for UFC Santiago (tentatively UFC Fight Night 129). Three of those bouts are female matchups.

Former Invicta FC alum and strawweight blue chipper Alexa Grasso (10-1-0) will take on TUF 23 winner Tatiana Suarez (13-2-0), Poliano Botelho (6-1-0) fights Syuri Kondo (6-0-0) while flyweights Andrea Lee (8-2-0) debuts against Veronica Macedo (5-1-1).

Rounding out the announced matchups, welterweights Vincent Luque (12-6-1) and Canadian Chad Laprise (13-2-0) tangle, with bantamweights Diego Rivas (7-1-0) and Guido Cannetti (7-3-0) square off.


More bouts are expected to be announced.
