Tonight’s co-feature saw another Brazilian standout, Vanessa Porto, edge out Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi in a flyweight rematch that was much closer than the judges’ scorecards suggested. At 145, Faith “The Immortal” Van Duin impressively submitted Amanda “The Lady Killer” Bell.

paige-vanzant-1

 
In what was clearly her most impressive performance to date, “12 Gauge” Paige VanZant earned a lopsided Unanimous Decision win tonight at UFC on FOX 15: “Machida vs Rockhold” in Newark, New Jersey. The Reebok-sponsored 21-year-old strawweight dominated Felice “Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig.

Many questioned the hype surrounding VanZant following her successful UFC debut in November, but she proved critics wrong again by punishing Herrig with ground and pound throughout tonight’s bout. Herrig survived until the final bell, but she was left battered and bloodied by VanZant’s assault.

Miesha-Tate-UFC-283x425

 
Bantamweight contenders Miesha “Cupcake” Tate and Jessica “Evil” Eye are officially set to face off on July 25th at UFC on FOX 16: “Dillashaw vs Barao 2” in Chicago, Illinois. The potential 135-pound title eliminator, which was initially targeted for June, was announced by UFC officials today.

Tate has racked up three straight victories since she suffered her second submission loss to current UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey at UFC 168. Eye has tasted defeat just one time inside the Octagon and she looks to earn a title shot by upsetting Tate in Chicago.
