Holly Holm will be making her UFC return in just a couple of months, according to ESPN.

Holm will be facing Raquel Pennington at UFC 243, which takes place on October 5 in Melbourne, Australia. The fight will be a rematch for the two athletes — Holm defeated Pennington via split decision all the way back in 2015 at UFC 184.

Holm’s last appearance led to her being quickly defeated via TKO in her fight against Amanda Nunes. However, UFC 243 will be the first time she’ll have competed in Melbourne since she made waves by knocking out Ronda Rousey back in 2015.

Pennington (who has also lost by TKO to Nunes) won her most recent fight against Irene Aldana via split decision.
