UFC FN 80: Rose Namajunas to Fight Paige VanZant
By FCF Staf
UFC Fight Night 80 has undergone a big change, as the promotion has announced that Joanne Calderwood has withdrawn from the main event due to injury. Stepping in to fight Paige VanZant will be fellow strawweight contender Rose Namajunas.
No details of Calderwood’s injury were disclosed.
Namajunas (3-2) fought earlier this month at UFC 192 and submitted Angela Hill in the opening round.
VanZant (6-1), meanwhile, submitted Alex Chambers in her last bout, which took place at UFC 191 in September.
UFC FN 80 will take place on December 10th at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas.
