Fresh off signing a new deal on Thursday, rising star Paige VanZant was booked for her first main event as she squares off with Joanne Calderwood on December 10 from the The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
UFC officials announced the new matchup along with a slew of new matchups for the card airing live on UFC Fight Pass in December.
VanZant traveled to Las Vegas this week to ink a new contract with the promotion after picking up three wins to start her career with the UFC.
While the terms of the deal weren't released, FOX Sports can confirm VanZant signed a multi-fight contract with the promotion and then she immediately put pen to paper on her new bout in her first headlining show since debuting in 2014.
VanZant will face former 'Ultimate Fighter' veteran Joanne Calderwood, who takes the fight after picking up her second win in the UFC in July over Cortney Casey in her home country of Scotland.
Calderwood was one of the top prospects coming off the reality show with an extensive background in Muay Thai kickboxing and she will present the biggest challenge of VanZant's career with the UFC.
In addition to VanZant vs. Calderwood headlining the UFC Fight Night card, officials also announced a huge slate of new bouts for the same night including the co-main event pitting former 'Ultimate Fighter' winner Michael Chiesa vs. Jim Miller in a lightweight battle.
The new UFC Fight Night card on Dec. 10 kicks off a huge weekend in Las Vegas followed up on Dec. 11 by 'The Ultimate Fighter' finale and then on Dec. 12 with UFC 194: Aldo vs. McGregor.
The full fight card as it stands is listed below with the new fights announced on Thursday.
