VanZant’s Return Set For Brazil
Paige VanZant has signed the last fight of her current UFC contract, as she will return to the Octagon for the first time in over a year on March 14th.
Per a report from MMA Fighting, VanZant will face Amanda Ribas on March 14th for the UFC’s return to Brazil, for a card in the city of Brasilia.
VanZant was last seen in January in Brooklyn’s Barclays Center with a second-round submission win over Rachael Ostovich. A fight was scheduled for later in the year for VanZant, but a reoccurring arm issue dating back to 2018 forced VanZant to undergo two more surgeries.
Ribas has only one loss in her professional career and since then has been on a tear including wins against Emily Whitmire in June and her most recent win over Mackenzie Dern at UFC Tampa last month.
