The UFC 200 card is filling up fast. A bantamweight title fight between Miesha Tate and Amanda Nunes was announced on Wednesday, and on Thursday night, another woman's bantamweight match was added to the lineup: Cat Zingano vs. TUF winner Julianna Pena.

A win by either fighter (ranked #3 and #4 respectively) would catapult them into the running for a shot at the title.

Zingano is currently 9-1 overall, and 2-1 in the UFC. She's has not only been in the Octagon against BOTH women fighting in the title fight, but has victories over them as well. Zingano hasn't fought since her quick submission loss to former bantamweight champion, Ronda Rousey, back in February 2015.

Pena is 7-2 overall, 3-0 in the UFC. She was the winner of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18. She recently returned to competition in April 2015 after a long injury layoff, quickly picking up two wins in a row, with the latest coming against Jessica Eye in October.

Although it hasn't been announced exactly when and where this fight will happen in the line up, it's safe to assume that it'll happen during the preliminary broadcast. The headlining event will obviously be the rematch against Conor McGregor and Nate Diaz.

The addition to UFC 200 was reported on ESPNW.
