Report: Paige VanZant vs. Poliana Botelho targeted for UFC 236

While UFC 236 has yet to receive a venue or location, it may be receiving a very exciting flyweight fight.

First reported by Combate, a flyweight bout between Paige VanZant and Poliana Botelho is in the works for the UFC 236 pay-per-view event on April 13.

VanZant (8-4) made a triumphant return to action after a year lay-off last month by submitting Racheal Ostovich on the UFC’s first ESPN+ event. The 24-year-old will look to start a streak at 125.

Botelho (7-2) will make her UFC flyweight debut after going 2-1 at 115. Outside of the UFC, she has held championships at 125 pounds. The Brazilian will look to bounce back from her first UFC loss, a submission to Cynthia Calvillo.

Who will you be rooting for?
