Ronda Rousey vs. Cris Cyborg might be one step closer to becoming a reality now that the knockout artist is set to make her bantamweight debut.

The Invicta FC featherweight champion will make her 135-pound debut at a yet-to-be announced Invicta FC card in December. Cyborg confirmed the plans to MMAFighting.com following a report by MMAJunkie.

There’s no date or venue for the card yet, which it will air live on UFC Fight Pass.

Unbeaten in MMA since 2005, Cyborg (12-1, 1 no-contest) won the Invicta FC featherweight championship in July of 2013 with a fourth-round TKO win over Marloes Coenen. The Brazilian is also a former Strikeforce champion, having defended the title three times in 2010 and 2011.

When UFC purchased Strikeforce in 2011, Cyborg had a chance to make her transition to the Octagon, but eventually asked to be released from her contract since the promotion wouldn’t open her division, forcing her to fight at 135 pounds. Three years later, the muay thai expert is finally ready to cut down.
