Review by AllTheBestFights.com: 2020-07-12, pretty good finish between Paige VanZant and Amanda Ribas but it is not enough to get three stars: it gets two.
Paige VanZant entered this fight with a pro record of 8-4-0 (62% finishing rate) but she is not ranked as she hasn’t fought since January 19, 2019 when she defeated Rachael Ostovich (Paige VanZant vs Rachael Ostovich); before this bout she lost to Michelle Waterson in 2016 (VanZant vs Waterson) and to Jessica-Rose Clark in 2018 (Paige VanZant vs Jessica-Rose Clark).
Her opponent, the black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and judo Amanda Ribas, has an official mma record of 9-1-0 (67% finishing rate) and she entered as the No.13 women’s strawweight in the world. She suffered her only loss when she faced Polyana Viana in 2015, since then she has won four bouts defeating Mackenzie Dern (Mackenzie Dern vs Amanda Ribas) and Randa Markos in her last two. VanZant vs Ribas is on the undercard of Kamaru Usman vs Jorge Masvidal – UFC 251. Watch the video and rate this fight!
