UFC FN 80: Rose Namajunas Booked to Scrap Paige VanZant

Rose Namajunas

Two of the UFC’s biggest names in the strawweight division have been booked to fight, as the promotion has announced that Rose Namajunas will take on Paige VanZant on December 10th.

Namajunas has been given the headlining assignment due to an injury Joanne Calderwood has incurred. The UFC hasn’t disclosed any details, however, of Calderwood’s injury.

Namajunas (3-2) heads into the bout having gone 1-1 in official UFC action. After she was submitted by Carla Esparza last December, and failed to win the inaugural 115 pound title, Namajunas tapped out Angela Hill in October.

VanZant (6-1) has won three straight now in the UFC, and most recently in September, she submitted Alex Chambers.

So, there you have it. UFC FN 80 will be hosted by the Cosmopolitans’ Chelsea in Las Vegas.
