However, she is now cleared to fight again and she will fight on the first-ever UFC on ESPN card in January. Although just a week back she refuted the claims about fighting Rachael Ostovich and said that she hadn’t received clearance and the matchup was “fake news.”

She made the announcement on her new YouTube page:

“The verdict is I can go for it, I can punch people again – well I’m not able to punch people yet – but in like six weeks I can punch people. But I can start training and working out again and I’m going to be fighting in January.”

“I can officially announce, you heard it here first, that I will be taking a fight on Jan. 18 on the first-ever ESPN card,” VanZant said. “We’re going to be getting an opponent matched up.”

Although VanZant didn’t specifically mention Ostovich’s name, she confirmed a bout agreement for the previously mentioned date is on the table, and now that she’s been cleared, she is prepared to sign it.

It’s a very intriguing matchup and VanZant would definitely be looking forward to ending her losing streak.
