VanZant Added To UFC 236

Following her first win in two years, Paige VanZant is looking to make 2019 an active year, as she is set to return at UFC 236.

VanZant fought for the first time in over a year at UFC’s Fight Night card in Brooklyn back in January, where she would defeat Rachael Ostovich by submission. Now, the Oregonian will face off against Poliana Botelho, looking for her second straight win at flyweight.

This will be Botelho’s return to the 125-pound division, looking to bounce back from a first round submission loss to Cynthia Calvillo in November of 2018 in Argentina. Prior to the loss, Botelho was riding a four-fight winning streak

VanZant-Botelho joins a UFC 236 card that will be headlined by Israel Adesanya and Kelvin Gastelum’s battle for the interim middleweight title at a venue to be announced.
