Mariya Agapova has gotten her wish.
Agapova (9-1) will face Shana “Danger” Dobson (3-4) on August 22.
Kazakhstan’s Agapova made a big impact in her promotional debut at UFC Vegas 2– finishing Hannah Cifers in the first round of their flyweight matchup and winning a $50k ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus for her efforts. Prior to signing with the UFC, Agapova rebounded from a loss on the Contender Series with two straight first round finishes in Invicta.
Dobson entered the UFC after competing on TUF 26, scoring a TKO win over Ariel Beck in her first official appearance in 2017. She currently rides a three-fight skid with losses to Lauren Mueller, Sabina Mazo and Priscila Cachoeira.
