Paige “12 Guage” VanZant is returning to the ring for the first time since her spectacular victory over Bec Rawlings in August. The strawweight is jumping back in the octagon December 17, against Michelle Waterson at UFC 22 on Fox.
VanZant who will take the main stage in December, has already taken the stage as the M&F Hers cover athlete for the November/December issue.
As for Waterson, this fight will only be her second in the UFC, her last being 17 months ago.
Shortly after VanZant’s big fight, another high-profile UFC fighter will be stepping in the octagon after an extended hiatus. The one and only, Ronda Rousey will be making her highly anticipated comeback on December 30 at UFC 207. Rousey’s last fight was 11-months ago against Holly Holm, where she was upset in dramatic fashion. Rousey will most definitely be looking to bounce back after taking her first lost in her MMA career.
