    Viviane Araujo vs. Andrea Lee targeted for UFCโ€™s May 14th event


    The UFCโ€™s womenโ€™s flyweight division could see a major rankings shake-up this spring.

    MMA Junkie reports that a matchup between Andrea Lee and Viviane Araujo is in the works for a May 14th event, which at the moment has neither a location nor a venue. Maybe itโ€™s a Fight Night, maybe itโ€™s a pay-per-view, who knows?

    Araujo (10-3) is coming off a decision loss to Katlyn Chookagian at UFC 262 in May. The Brazilian is 4-2 inside the Octagon, with notable wins over Roxanne Modafferi, Alexis Davis, and a spectacular KO of Talita Bernardo in her debut (which was contested at bantamweight).

    Lee (13-5) has won two in a row, including a submission of Antonina Shevchenko and a corner stoppage TKO of Cynthia Calvillo back in November. Itโ€™s been a heck of a turnaround for โ€˜KGB,โ€™ whoโ€™d previously lost three straight to Joanne Wood, Lauren Murphy, and Roxanne Modafferi.

    Current UFC womenโ€™s flyweight rankings have Araujo at #6 and Lee at #8.

    Miesha Tate vs. Lauren Murphy is also in line for the UFCโ€™s May 14th card, but thereโ€™s no word yet on what the main event will be.
