Cape Town - An exciting women's strawweight bout has been added to the
UFC on Fox 21 card in August as Paige VanZant will meet Bec Rawlings.
The news was announced on Thursday by VanZant while on
VanZant (6-2) has not been in the octagon since a dominant
loss to Rose Namajunas last December. While she may not have been busy inside
the cage she sure has been outside of it. She just finished second on the U.S
version of the hit show 'Dancing with the Stars'. Prior to falling
at the hands of Namajunas, the 22-year old was a perfect 3-0 with wins over
Kailin Curran, Felice Herrig and Alex Chambers to her name. Highly touted as a
future star the young fighter has a tough fight ahead of her.
Rawlings (7-4) is a tough fighter who is riding a wave of
confidence into this fight having won 2 of her last 3 octagon appearances over
Lisa Ellis and Seo Hee Ham. The "Rowdy" Australian has a knack
for getting herself into exciting fights and this has all the ingredients to be
an absolute classic.
