Paige VanZant vs Poliana Botelho on flip for UFC 236

UFC 236 Live Stream pay-per-view (PPV) fight card, set for Sat., April 13, 2019 in a venue and city to be named. What we do know for sure, is that Israel Adesanya will battle Kelvin Gastelum for the interim middleweight strap.

Upcoming mystery event will be flyweight standouts Paige VanZant and Poliana Botelho, who collide for a spot in the 125-pound pecking order. VanZant (8-4) snapped a two-fight losing streak with her submission win over Rachael Ostovich at the UFC Fight Night 143 event back in January. “12 Gauge” is hoping to gain some traction after abandoning the 115-pound weight class late last year.

The 24-year-old VanZant improved to 8-4 with a victory over Rachael Ostovich on Jan. 19 at UFC Brooklyn. The second-round submission victory was her first win since jumping up to flyweight from strawweight and was her first win since her Aug. 27, 2016 knockout of Bec Rawlings.

Although contracts have not yet been signed, PVZ and Poliana Botelho have agreed to compete at UFC 236 on April 13 in a flyweight bout. Botelho (7-2), meanwhile, returns to the 125-pound weight class after a strawweight stint. The 30-year-old from Rio de Janeiro was submitted by Cynthia Calvillo on Nov. 17 in the first round of their bout in Argentina. The defeat snapped a four-fight winning streak
