The UFC is working on putting together several fights for the coming months.

Among those in the works is a title bout between champion Valentina Shevchenko and Taila Santos. 

Shevchenko vs. Santos would be one of the marquee bouts in June at UFC 275, if it is made official. 

UFC 275 is expected to take place June 11. A location has yet to be announced, though Singapore is rumored. Glover Teixeira defending his light heavyweight title vs. Jiri Prochazka is expected to headline.

Shevchenko is the reigning UFC flyweight champion. She is unbeaten since moving down to 125 pounds after a run at bantamweight. 

Santos is on a four-fight win streak. 

Michelle Waterson and Amanda Ribas has been rescheduled for UFC 274. The bout will take place May 7 after it was scheduled for this month.

Waterson has posted a 6-5 record inside the Octagon including wins over Paige VanZant and Angela Hill. Ribas is 11-2 overall and 5-1 with the UFC.

UFC 274 is expected to take place from Phoenix with Justin Gaethje challenging Charles Oliveira for the title.

Former title contender Jennifer Maia is set to return to action at UFC Fight Night later this month vs. Manon Fiorot. That card takes place March 26 from Columbus, Ohio.

Maia lost to Shevchenko for the title at UFC 255 and recently signed a new deal with the promotion. Fiorot was removed from UFC 272 after Jessica Eye was forced out.
