VanZant-Ostovich Signed For UFC On ESPN+ Debut
After calling it “fake news” when it was leaked a few months ago, Paige VanZant’s return to the Octagon was confirmed on Tuesday afternoon, as she faces off against Rachael Ostovich at the UFC’s return to Brooklyn in January.

The two flyweights are the first to be announced for the debut of UFC on ESPN+, which will happen on January 19th at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.
January 19th marks the return of VanZant to the Octagon since breaking her arm nearly a year ago against Jessica-Rose Clark in St. Louis.
Ostovich looks to get above .500 after splitting her first two fights in the UFC, the first being a victory of Karin Gevorgyan and a submission loss to Montana De La Rosa.
