Paige VanZant to fight #5 ranked fighter, not getting title shot next

on

UFC President Dana White revealed on UFC Tonight that Paige VanZant won’t be getting a title shot next, but will be fighting a top five fighter next.

“She’s probably looking to fight #5…but she’s not ready for Joanna Jędrzejczyk yet.”

Paige VanZant (6-1) is currently on a four-fight winning streak. In her last six bouts, she beat Amber Stautzenberger in September of 2012 by unanimous decision. Her first loss came to erica Torres in January of 2013 by unanimous decision, but rebounded with a win over Courtney Himes in April of 2013 by first round rear-naked-choke. In her next/latest bout, she beat Kailin Curran by third round TKO in November of 2014 at UFC Fight Night: Edgar vs. Swanson. She beat Felice Herrig at UFC on Fox 15 by decision. She beat Alex Chambers by third-round armbar at UFC 191.
