Seven fights were announced Tuesday for the UFC’s return event in Sacramento, Calif.

Among the most noteworthy bouts announced were a featherweight matchup between Ryan Hall and Darren Elkins, and a women’s strawweight bout between Cynthia Calvillo and Livinha Souza.

The company stated it has seven fights lined up for the July 13 card at Golden 1 Center, which were published in The Sacramento Bee.

Hall (7-1 MMA; 3-0 UFC) is coming off the biggest win over his career, a quick submission of B.J. Penn at UFC 232. Elkins, (24-7 MMA; 14-6 UFC) a UFC mainstay since 2010, looks to shake off a two-fight losing streak.

In the women’s fight, Calvillo (8-1 MMA; 5-1 UFC) seeks to build on the momentum of a two-fight win streak. Souza (13-1 MMA: 2-0 UFC), the former Invicta FC strawweight champion, is on a four-fight win streak.

The other bouts announced for the July 13 UFC on ESPN+ 13 event, which does not yet have a main event, are a women’s bantamweight bout between former flyweight champion Nicco Montano and Olympic wrestling silver medalist Sara McMann; Karl Roberson vs. John Phillips at middleweight; Benito Lopez vs. Martin Day at bantamweight; Beneil Dariush vs. Drakkar Klose at lightweight, and Marvin Vettori vs. Cesar Ferreira at middleweight.
