First reported by Mike Bohn of MMA Fighting, Paige VanZant is expected to return to action at a UFC event on March 14 in Brazil against Amanda Ribas in a strawweight contest.
The fight will be the last one on VanZant’s UFC contract. VanZant (8-4) last fought in January, submitting Rachael Ostovich in a flyweight fight at UFC on ESPN+ 1. In the fight, “12 Guage” suffered another break to her arm. The fight versus Ostovich marked the second fight as a flyweight for VanZant.
Brazil’s Ribas (8-1) has impressed in her first two Octagon outings. She debuted with a submission win over Emily Whitmire in June and followed that up with a dominant decision over Mackenzie Dern at UFC Tampa in October.
Who will you be rooting for?
