Is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that is planned to take place on May 11, 2019 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The event was originally expected to be held at Arena da Baixada in Curitiba. However, the event was relocated to Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, after the UFC failed to come to terms with Athletico Paranaense.

A UFC Women's Strawweight Championship bout between current champion Rose Namajunas and Jéssica Andrade is expected to serve as the event headliner.

A bout between former bantamweight title challenger Bethe Correia and Irene Aldana is scheduled to take place at the event. The matchup was originally scheduled to take place in August 2018 at UFC 227, but Correia pulled out of that event, citing injury.

A bantamweight bout between Talita Bernardo and Jessica-Rose Clark was scheduled at the event. However, it was reported on April 3, 2019 Clark pulled out of the bout citing injury and she was replaced by newcomer Melissa Gatto.
