"The Karate Hottie" has her next UFC fight set.

She'll get the opponent she wanted - Michelle Waterson - and the two will meet at FOX UFC Fight Night on April 15, part of four new bouts confirmed for the upcoming card in Kansas City, Missouri.

The UFC later announced a featherweight match-up between former bantamweight champion Renan Barao and rising prospect Doo Ho Choi would headline the event.

A former finalist on The Ultimate Fighter Season 20, Namajunas is coming off a split decision loss in her title eliminator fight with Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 201 in July of past year. The defeat snapped a three-fight winning streak for "Thug Rose", which included successful performances against Tecia Torres, Paige VanZant and Angela Hill. She's still ranked at No. 5 to Waterson's No. 7.

Other bouts include The Ultimate Fighter 24 victor Tim Elliott in a featherweight battle with Louis Smolka, a light heavyweight bout between Devin Clark and Jake Collier, and Andrew Sanchez vs. Anthony Smith in a middleweight contest.

Three other bouts will take place: Tim Elliott, the recent victor of Ultimate Fighter, will square off against flyweight Louis Smolka; a pair of light heavyweights in Devin Clark and Jake Collier marry up; a middleweight bout between Anthony Smith and former "Ultimate Fighter" champion Andrew Sanchez finishes off the star-studded card.
