Jamie Moyle vs Viviane Pereira added to June 3 UFC show

The UFC announced that Jamie Moyle vs Viviane Pereira has been added to UFC 212 June 3 at the HSBC Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I would expect this fight to air on the UFC Fight Pass prelims. Jamie is an Invicta veteran originally from Orlando, FL. But she now trains at Syndicate MMA in Las Vegas. She was in TUF 23 and she made her UFC debut with a win over Kailin Curran in December. She looked pretty good in that fight and I expect her to be favoured in this fight. Viviane is from Fortaleza, Brazil with a 12-0 record. She's a former XFC Strawweight Champ. She made her UFC debut in December with a split decision win over veteran Valerie Letourneau. I scored that fight a draw. Valerie won the first round and then she did nothing for two rounds. So she gave the fight away.  And Viviane didn't do much either. The problem Viviane has is she's very tiny even for a Strawweight and she's mainly a striker. Jamie is better on the ground and she should use those skills to win. Maybe Viviane shouldn't be in the UFC. This fight should tell us that.
