After Holly Holm’s UFC debut was postponed earlier this month due to injury, the undefeated bantamweight has been rebooked to fight Raquel Pennington on February 28th.

The bout will be part of UFC 184, which will be hosted by the Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Holm has gone 7-0 since the decorated boxer transitioned into pro MMA. The Jackson’s MMA fighter hasn’t fought since Legacy FC in April, when she stopped Juliana Werner.

After Holm withdrew, Pennington (5-4) ended up fighting Ashlee Evans Smith at UFC 181, and choked her out with a first round, Bulldog Choke.

UFC 184 will feature middleweight champion Chris Weidman taking on Vitor Belfort in the main event.
