The fight week has arrived and only a few days are left for the UFC Fight Night 143.
The whole fight card is promising as the main event is the most anticipated fight between the flyweight champion Henry Cejudo and the bantamweight champion TJ Dillashaw. For the whole fight week (till the weigh-in) fighters usually go through the weight cut process.
Paige Vanzant who is a fighting Rachael Ostovich (4-4 MMA, 1-1 UFC) this week, has posted pictures of how her weight cut is going.
This fight is crucial for both the female fighters as both fighters lost their last fight.
Paige Vanzant is coming off a loss to Jessica-Rose Clark at UFC Fight Night 124, January last year. She wasn’t fighting because of an injury.
Talking about the injury VanZant in an interview said, “I thought I would be back training in eight weeks, and it’s been nine months and two surgeries and then hip surgery that will help, like, fix the arm. So it’s been a very long process that I didn’t anticipate having to go through.”
The fight, UFC Fight Night: Cejudo vs. Dillashaw is taking place this Saturday, January 19 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York.
