Paige VanZant (pictured) will be locked and loaded on September 5. On Wednesday, “12 Gauge” announced via Twitter that she’ll meet Alex Chambers at UFC 191.
Despite having competed just twice inside the octagon, both resulting in wins, VanZant has quickly marketed herself to becoming one of the promotion’s more recognizable fighters. Her cover girl looks have certainly help, as well.
VanZant owns a 5-1 professional record, with her most recent victory coming in April’s unanimous decision over Felice Herrig.
Chambers is looking to build off last month’s submission win against Kailin Curran. At 36, “Astro Girl” is 15 years VanZant’s senior.
MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada hosts the shindig.
No other bouts have been rumored for the event.
