UFC adds Rayanne dos Santos vs. Talita Alencar to Dec. 9 card in Las Vegas

Former Invicta FC champion Rayanne dos Santos will meet fellow Brazilian prospect Talita Alencar on the Dec. 9 show in Las Vegas, multiple people with knowledge of the booking told MMA Fighting.

The UFC Vegas card will be headlined by Song Yadong vs. Chris Gutierrez.

Dos Santos (14-6) captured the Invicta FC atomweight belt in May by defeating Jillian DeCoursey via decision, and has now won seven of her past eight, five of those by stoppage. The sole defeat came in a 2022 decision to Denise Gomes at Dana White’s Contender Series.

Alencar (4-0-1) also competed on DWCS, fighting to a draw with Stephanie Luciano before signing a deal with the UFC. Alencar is a jiu-jitsu specialist with multiple IBJJF world championships gold medals to her credit, and scored three straight rear-naked choke finishes under the Titan FC banner to kick off her MMA career in 2021.
