Last weekend, Paige VanZant tweeted that her next fight would be against the winner of TUF 26 for the flyweight title.
My next fight is against the winner of the 125 division Ultimate Fighter. Don’t blink.

Valentina Shevchenko, a former bantamweight title challenger who’s dropping to flyweight, caught wind of PVZ’s claims and responded via Twitter.

UFC brass later denied PVZ’s claim of a title fight. At this moment, Shevchenko and VanZant have no scheduled bouts.
The inaugural flyweight champion will be crowned later this year at the TUF 26 Finale.
